I have and would suggest rethinking the Grizzly g0766 tail stock. Mine is difficult when trying to remove the live center and only has about 1 3/4 inch of travel because the MT doesn;t seat until the tail is out 1/4 to 1/2inch. It is also tight turning at the beginning and end of travel. Perhaps the g0800 tail stock is better. Consider turning outboard on something that big to reduce the requirements needed for spindle turning. Just MHO
