Project Example: Morse #0 taper blanks are the starting point for many accessories.

What does this tool do? One can cut Morse Taper and Morse arbors easily even on a small home shop lathe. Since labor costs are not an issue for hobby type work, you can make these accessories by yourself for close to zero dollars. All you need to do is setting the cutting angle precisely enough. Our LASER protractor is exactly doing this for you, making the entire process a piece of cake. Cutting a perfectly fitting Morse taper takes 5 min / piece. Actually, we are crazy offering this kind of tool.
Sure one can cut any small angle taper: Jacobs, Jarno, Morse, etc. One can calibrate a vertical mill, set a tilt table, calibrate a sine vice, etc.

Project Example: Center drill -
Morse Adapters.

Other sizes of test arbors available on request. We enjoy making unusual stuff - try us.

Further project examples: pieces cut using the LASER protractor. Our LASER protractor allows for cutting any machine taper and arbor.

Example: Jacobs drill chuck adapters

Example: Morse Arbor-Taper adapters. Super expensive reamer
are not required to cut Morse arbors.

Example: center drill Morse #0 adapters.

Example: Specialty adapters with a Morse taper end.

Example: Morse #0 and Morse #1 arbors and dead centers.

Using the LASER protractor,
one can set the taper angle with a precision of 0.2 degrees.

Using extended scales a precision of 0.01 degrees can be reached.

Example: Morse taper #0, #1, #2. Cutting larger size Morse tapers is actually simpler on a smaller benchtop lathe than on a full size system.
Customer projects: we would love it to see your own projects. If you like, e-mail an image to us. If you agree we would put it up at our website, but no compensations.
