    They definitely are (or were) a thing. I've got a photo in one of my books somewhere. Trying to find it now.

    Page 386, 387 of Machine Tool Operation (Burghardt, Axelrod, Anderson, 1959) describes drilling on a lathe using one, and has a couple of illustrations. The text describes refers to it as a type of dog though, so Pipeclay was right.

    The trouble with books is, not everyone has the same books as you. Why don't you post a picture?

    If you require a sleeve to go over the end of the drill parallel Morse taper sleeves can be purchased or made as well as standard Morse taper sleeves, from what I have seen it would then only require you to weld a suitable piece of material to the OD to act as a stop.

    As for purchasing a finished item I haven't seen one but haven't looked to hard either.

    The cost of sleeves are very reasonable.

    I assume the only reason to do this is if the drills taper or shank doesn't match the tails stock ie is larger. Looks a bit dangerous to me, same as the Americans' idea of holding a piece of stock by hand and drilling against those morse taper Vee blocks in the tailstock.

    If this is what you need, wouldn't a mt-enlarging sleeve be the way to go? I have a mt2 to mt3 sleeve for example. Can be bought easily over here. Sort of reverse reduction sleeve.

    I thought it would be the other way around ie putting a Morse 3 tool in a smaller Morse 2 lathe

    Yep, true name is "extension socket" used to either adapt larger Morse tool to smaller Morse machine OR to extend the length of a Morse taper drill for better reach on some workpieces..... but we all knew that!
