You have posted in two different threads for the same / similar request for help  relative to using a
taper wizard and that leads to confusion. Thus the replies may differ since there is a taper turning wizard
in the Turning wizard used  with the  generic lathe screen set and then you have one in NFS Turn.
Thus different wizards and inputs are similar but different.

So in my reply, yet to be posted, will assume the following:
- Using the generic 1024 lset for the lathe
- Using the Turning / Lathe Turning Wizards by Brian / Kiran (OD Taper)
- You will be using imperial units

Have not used that wizard in a long time and post a write up for you.

mpix00,

Attached PDF should answer questions relative to the OD taper wizard. Yes they can be confusing.

MODIFIED: ADDED THE COMMENT BELOW

In the drawing of the taper, Figure 1 of the attached pdf, the angles SHOULD BE 5.066 degrees and 10.1320 degrees.
They are the values you should use in the wizard and not 5 & 10 deg. The degrees were rounded in CAD. Sorry about that. :-[
