Morse taper vs Morris taper

I'm used to dealing with Morse tapers, but I've seen people mention Morris tapers as well - is this just another name for the same thing, a common typo, or something different?

Yup

Morse tapers are on machines, mills and lathes,
drill presses.
Morris Taper was a drywall guy whose specialty was horizontal runs, waist high......

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Yeah, Morris is just a misspelling. It's actually Morse.

And then there is the classic... joiner instead of jointer.

Also jointer instead of joiner.

Thats too funny!!

All my family is from KY. Most have lost the southern accent for the most part after living in OH most of thier lives but I have this one uncle who's southern accent is still very strong. Now I have been around hill folk all my life and consider myself a hill folk yet there are times I still cant understand a darn thing he says, lol. One of his words is "zink". I had never heard that anywhere else till you posted it, lol.
