The January 1962 issue of Popular Mechanics contained a 5 page article by Walter E. Burton giving plans for fabricating
a taper attachment for a lathe. It is believed that these plans are now in the public domain due to
copyright expiration. In any event, the scanned images (in .jpg format) from that issue are provided
here for educational and private use purposes.
There is a zipfile which contains all 5 .jpg pages - about 1.8MB.
Alternately, you may prefer a PDF file containing all of the pages (best resolution) - about 0.9MB.
The links below refer to the images of the individual pages (about 400KB each).
