Taig lathe tailstock tramming animations.
Zero front/back readings.
It is the tailstock that is
moved horizontally (typically opposing set screws) and/or

vertically (shims or grinding) into proper
position as indicated by the dial test gauge.


Zero top/bottom readings.

CAUTION: DO NOT TURN THE LATHE ON

Another method used to center the tailstock with
respect to the tailstock
is to mount a dial test gauge
in the spindle & a dowel pin in the tailstock-mounted
drill chuck
; another method uses the dead center.
The test dial indicator
is mounted in a collet.
Rotate the spindle front & back while adjusting the

tailstock offset, making half-the-difference changes
between them until there are no differences.
