Tapered turning by using the compound slide 1. The brown base of the yellow compound slide is turned an angle α (half of taper angle of cone surface to be created) and then fixed. This makes the tool moves along a line that creates an angle α with the axis of rotation of the orange work when turning the compound slide screw.
The green cross slide and the violet carriage are fixed during operation.
