Re: Tail Stock Wear

I had another thought. Check the quill diameter in several places along its length. Mine is worn a few thou in the first 1-1/2" of its length. As a result the quill screw will not bind the housing tight enought to completely lock the quill when working / using the tail stock with the quill extended in this range. Probably the best fix for this would be to make a new quill.
