Taper Attachment Plans

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.
