If i would build another taper attachment i would use a rectangle bar for the sine bar instead of round bar as i did. The round bar is fine but i had some old wheels to run on it and making them would be a pain in the rear. I also have to remove the complete cross slide screw so the cross slide moves freely to follow the taper but thats only a 2 minute job...Bob

Here is another i did yesterday for the wife. She broke the handle on her el cheapo lint roller and wanted me to make one that wouldn't break. Enter the aluminum bar stock. It turned out so good i may go into production on them for gifts anyway. Now i can say dear thats why i have 4 metal lathes to keep you happy :) ..Bob

That is great, the next time I'm looking at lathes on ebay and the wife says " So you get this lathe and then what are you going to do with it?" Instead of my usual "I can think of a ton of things." answer - I'm coming back to this post. ;)

Back in the 1980's I worked in a machine shop running a Jones and Lamson turret lathe - wanted one ever since - so many tools so little time!

Chad,
The taper attachment is the easy part. Unhooking your cross slide screw is the hard part. Because you want your cross slide to float along while being guided by the bar in the back thats set to the angle. How big is your leadscrew? (dia and TPI) because maybe one from ebay off another lathe would work.
