That's an open question.

Post a picture of your lathe so far and we'll have a better idea----

Hey there. What kind of lathe are you building? Woodworking or Metalworking?

Show some pics of what you already have....

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

Welcome! You might be able to find a tailstock at a flea market. If not there's always eBay or try a WTB (Want To Buy) in the classified section of various woodworking forums. But we really do need to see what kind of lathe you're making and how the bed is laid out before we can offer better ideas.
