Pressed in 1/2" stainless dog pin, and secured with set screw. 
Getting started on CNC?  In or passing through my area?
If I have the time I'll be glad to show you a little in my shop.

Nice!  What's the base material, Bob?

Oh... and Happy New Year to you and yours, in about 3.5 hours!

Its just 6061-T6. I would have used 4140, but I'm waiting on new thrust bearings for one axis on the big mill.  

HAPPY NEW YEAR

It worked.  Not only does it work just fine for turning a stainless taper between centers it also worked pretty nicely as a "knock" wrench to unscrew two smooth stainless rods from each other that were cylindrical with no wrench flats.  One went in the aluminum vise in the picture, and the other went in the lathe dog.  A couple taps with my brass hammer and apart they came.
