Re: I don't see any function this .......

The tap is not in the tail stock.....the spring center tap guide is "in the tail stock"

The head stock does not rotate in this procedure. The head stock spindle is secured.

The advantage that this spring center tap guide gives a person tapping threads on a wood lathe is that now you can just concentrate on turning the tap.....you do not have to simultaneously advance the tail stock as you rotate the tap. You free-up your right hand.....makes it simpler.

I'd suggest going to YouTube and looking at some videos on tapping on the wood lathe. There is a very good instructional video by JR Beall showing how to use his taps.
