Re: 14 1/2" tailstock taper

I have a 14 1/2 lathe and the tail stock is a MT3. The spindle
is larger (about a MT 4ish). It wasn't a standard MT. Mine has a
L00 spindle mount. Use an MT3/Jacobs size for whatever drill chuck

I have a 14 1/2" x 6 lathe that I had listed here for sale a time back. I decided to go ahead and finish getting it wired up and put it to use and I need a drill chuck for it. I could have sworn it came with a Jacob's chuck but I can't find it so perhaps I never received it. I know the spindle uses a custom taper, but what taper does the tailstock use? Is it MT2 or does it match the spindle?
