Help Removing Cup center from Tailstock Spindle
I could really use some help. I am new to wood turning and have an old Sears lathe I am trying to learn on. It has a #1 Morse taper. The cup center is firmly stuck in the tail stock spindle. I have removed the spindle from the tail stock and soaked it in Liquid Wrench for over a week, but it still is not possible to tap out the cup center using a hardwood dowel. Any suggestions on how to get it out? I haven't been able to find where I might buy a new tail stock spindle due to the age of the lathe (1970's era). I would really appreciate any advice on what else I can try. Thanks!
