Anvil hardy cone


Recommended Posts

I've been able to turn tapers on my ancient flat belt drive lathe by offsetting the tailstock and using a faceplate and lathe dog to drive the workpiece.
For cones with a sharper angle, I have turned the cross slide with the tool post at an angle to the workpiece held in the lathe chuck..Hope this helps. :)

It has been over forty years since I did a big taper like that in high school for a bracelet mandrel and thirty years since I did a long taper for a rifle barrel. I see them on eBay and used to see in the old "Tailgate" section at fairly reasonable prices so it can't be that difficult, can it? :huh:
