This is a ww Boley type lathe tailstock I bought some time ago. The locking system is obviously wrong, but interesting. It consists of a disc with the hole offset by about 0.007", creating a cam effect which bears against the locating pin in the body of the tailstock. Photos show item as bought, old cam and new lock, and as it is now.(more correct, but maybe less character) Dave. 278094-9851e0c089a7f415137df2690fa7f39d.jpg 278095-17bc2a098ea51786e229e04b5274dfbb.jpg 278099-5f63344da9fe1af769c31c7022ca41dc.jpg

That's a good fix and I would have do the same correction.
