Joel,

Purchase this 

Grizzly G5714 - Morse Taper Sleeve - MT3/MT2

from grizzly for $9 and keep itin your pocket at the next auction or flea market.  You can test fit any taper shank quickly. Someoneelse said a good eye can spot MT 2 from MT 1 but i once bought some odd ball brown and sharpe taper stuff by accident..( although it fits my vernon sheldon horizotal mill!). 

also a jacobs chuck for the tailstock and a handful of HSS steel tool blanks and someway to hold them ( quick change vrs lantern vrs turret) is really all you need to do a lot of fun projects!
