I am fishing around to see if anyone out there might have some #3 morse taper spindles for the old spetzier or kurt murker type lathes. I am looking for the tapered thread for use with leaded stones and one with a one inch bore.

Kenny, if you can't find any made for the purpose on a Spatzier or Merker you may find this link useful for getting them custom made: http://www.lathecity.com/CustomDesigns/index.html

HIS Glass sells M3 Tapers for the Spatzier Lathe. $290 for a 1" arbor and $260 for the stone (not sure if it's the fine or coarse stone tapered thread)
I would get a quote from a local machine shop

This may help you find something local http://100kgarages.com/

I had a few M3 Tapers made about 12 years ago. I think I paid $100 per piece. I was also offered a full time job at the machine shop....still kicking myself.
