What angle is a taper lock bush?

8 degrees
The Taper-Lock® design has a taper angle of 8 degrees or 1-11/16” taper per foot, which minimizes end disk deflection. However, of all hub and bushing systems, it has the lowest ability to grip the shaft.

What is the taper on a taper lock bushing?

A taper-lock bushing gets its name from the 8 degree taper from one side to the next before it locks into place. This reduces the necessary length-thru-bore for any application. An internal screw holds the taper-lock bushing in place, providing a slimmer fit than a flanged bushing.
