Taper Attachment Adaptor (S-4382B).

The taper attachment adaptor attaches on the end of the S-4382 "T" slot cross slide for South Bend type lathes with taper attachments. The adaptor enables using the "T" slot cross slide with the taper attachment without having to reinstall the old cross slide for taper turning.

The new "T" slot cross slide with the adaptor will be essentially the same as the old cross slide, except that in being longer to provide the large mounting surface with "T" slots, it will have a shorter taper attachment engagement slot. Therefore a minor modification should be made in the original set up. Instead of the engagement stud being permanently a part of the taper attachment slider, and always engaged in the cross slide slot, it is instead attached to the nut handle. Therefore on removing the handle and stud the slider can be parked out of the way at the tailstock end of the slideway when the taper attachement is not in use, allowing full cross slide travel.

The kit for making the adaptor includes an iron casting, drawing (also showing the S-4382 cross slide), and machining instructions. The adaptor can be made along with the new "T" slot cross slide or retrofitted to an existing cross slide.
