Depends on which 10 you have. I have 2 10ER's, see my sig,they have two different carriages. One needed a spacer and one didn't.
I bought a Robust 9"tool rest with 1" shaft to allow more height adjustment.
The stock SS tool rest is just barely below centerline. The specialty toolrests that came with my UTR package will go 5/16" below centerline. I don't know how well that works with the Easy Wood Tools
And finally, A mock up of an extension for the tailstock that will let you turn spindles 8 to 10" longer with the UTR without needing another carriage(I think, depending on your tool rest. This is the 9" Robust shown. I know there are other threads about waytube extensions. With the speed changer mounted I have 27" between centers. this extension would allow 38".
Headstock and UTR tight to the tailstock with full extension on the spindle and two different live centers. I also have a morse taper extension if needed.
Sorry for the long post, but I did get practice resizing pictures, attaching and placing them inline.
