Hi John,
During and after WWII, the tapers were all revised to .602 except for the 10R which ended in 1951 with .623 taper.  The taper diameters were .938 for the 9/10K and 1.6295 for the large lathes. 
The older 14-1/2 had the same .602 taper, but the TD was 1.325

Steve do you by chance know the taper on the early 14 1/2" spindle , I know they had a Colet adapter but was curious if any other sizes could interchange or was the 14 1/2 on its own.
