English term or phrase: Tow-along tailstock
A **tow-along headstock** is not just programmable, but can be moved by CNC input along the lathe's track. It is not unlike the carriage of a printer, with the ability to move in either direction. **Tow-along tailstocks** are unique to CNC lathes. Because the **tow-along tailstock** is both programmable and moveable, the tailstock which rides on the track is connected by wires which receive CNC data, in a similar way to plugging a trailer into a car.
