Comments On Oct 29, 2021:Finally realized that I hardly ever need to turn longer spindles, but often need to get the tailstock out of the way. I had purchased the accessory tailstock holder and it was helpful, but the tailstock is still heavy and takes some time to reinstall.
However the tilt away is nice and simple and quick. Allows me to swing the tailstock to the front or the rear of the lathe in seconds. No need to lift and align tailstock to the lathe bed. Simply pull the pin and loosen the tilt away release. Glad I was able to add it on later with very little effort.
Makes the Sweet 16 even sweeter.
