Re: Tailstock taper question

No, each morse taper is different. They vary from .598"/ft to .625"/ft
The #2 and #3 are close but you need a friction fit for the entire
length for it to operate properly.

Would removing a fraction of an inch off the small end of the drill
chuck arbor morse taper give you enough to bite? It would still fit
the headstock, but just be a bit shorter so that it doesn't bottom
out in the tailstock.
