Taper Turning Attachment

I see that there isn't any way for me to cut a taper on a shaft with my Craftsman lathe. But someone mentioned a Tapper Turning Attachment but I can't seem to find one to fit my lathe.
Any direction would be helpful
Thank you
Tom

Re: Tubes...leaking

Hello fellas, Has this tractor as I understand been in storage for a while or running when the leak was discovered how old is the boiler? Was stored in a wet climate empty, or opened to the environment ( drain plugs out) , stored outside under a tarp ? Possibly the tubes rotted from the inside? So ...

While you will see people vaguebooking on Twitter and Instagram, it's especially prevalent on Facebook. Which is where the name---a portmanteau of "vague" and the "book" from Facebook...
