That is such a great idea, I think i will make one for my lathe. Add clips to hold the work, make it adjustable to accommodate leg splay angles…

Just keep in mind, the whole jig has to chuck up in the tailstock… It could ride on the ways for support.

The only place where a lathe is better at drilling than a drill press is when the drilled piece is turning in the headstock, and you are drilling a co-axial hole with the bit chucked in the tailstock.

A V block should be a standard accessory for every drill press. Most already have a tilting table to which to clamp it.
