Tapering a Norris adjuster shaft

Stem taper 001

Stem taper 002

A Norris style plane iron adjuster has a graceful taper in the shaft for decorative purposes. The red on the taper is layout fluid to add some contrast for the photos.  I really should have had the tailstock engaged, but I was working on the end of this piece of steel and the tailstock interfered with the tool post.  A few passes and it’s done!
