Need Help Identifying This

Recommended Posts

The face plate (on the pulley side) should have one or more cutouts in it for driving a lathe dog. Do a search on metal turning between centers. Only, instead of turning tools, this will grind the OD. Depending on setup/adjustments, you may be able to grind tapers. Depending on how beat up/worn out it is, it may only grind tapers. :) Can the center be adjusted side to side on the tailstock? Do they currently line up together?
