*This doesn't include the space taken up by a motor
**This is deceptive, with the 4 jaw chuck on, the actual travel between the fully extended tailstock centre and the 4 jaw chuck jaws, without moving the toolpost on the slide (which allows you to take several cuts at different points on the work) is 5.875"
***Thus work can be fed through the spindle, unlike a drawbar closing mechanism.
****5/16" collet is not bored through, 9/32" collet is the largest that can have stock fed through.
