Your lathe (PSI Turncrafter Commander, right?) came with a knock-out rod that is used to eject whatever you put in the headstock spindle taper. The manual for your lathe (on page 8) tells how to use it for a spur center, but it’s the same for whatever you put in there – and what you show appears to be the stub end of a MT2-JT33 adapter for use with a drill chuck.


PS: I imagine it’s rather hard turning stuff on that machine while it’s suspended from the ceiling upside down :)
