Is there a way to rotate the coordinate about y to comp for tailstock taper?

The only axis you can rotate about is Z, having said that I don't see why a comp file would not work to straighten out your lathe.

I went ahead and fixed it the right way and realigned the tailstock.

It would be nice to be able to tweak out some taper in a part with a taper comp of some kind instead of having to edit the program of a multi dia part.

On my Harding CHNC lathe I do 95% of the ops using ngcgui. Have you seen that?
