Tailstock Riser Block

The Tailstock Riser Block is an add-on to the Large Outboard Attachment. By installing it onto the Outboard Attachment, it allows the tailstock to be used on the outboard side of the lathe (as shown).

By adding the Riser Block, the following will be achieved:

  • increased safety
  • (important when turning up to 48")
  • a wider variety of cuts
  • heavier cuts

Aligment of the riser block to the spindle is achieved using precision dowels and shims (supplied).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Alignment Kit (Part No. 3319) is REQUIRED if your Serial Number is #1513 or less.
