What’s the use of having something that’s there and has no bearing what’s so ever and has no use at all not even a Dickie.!😇
thanks for all input, I have done most of the toolpost diameters I can find, now looking at the headstock threads and tapers.
Hi. My Wadkin RT (RTA 380 of 1951) uses a 1 3/8" BSW (6tpi) headstock thread. Headstock has an MT2 taper (blind, like the RS), and the tailstock is also MT2.

Don't forget to add Wadkin's RU to the list (no, I don't know any of the sizes for the RU).

Cheers, Vann.

Later models are M33 X 3.5 tpi I believe
I thought it might be worthwhile to compile a list of post dimensions and any other useful information for use when hunting spares, different sizes or improvements.
