I'm pretty sure its for a SB lathe, I have a Heavy 10 follow rest and its identical to this one, just slightly bigger. A friend who has a SB 13" and 16" also has steady rest that look like this one. This is a parts diagram from South Bend
Look for the unit code stamped where they say it should be. For the record I was incorrect about the seneca falls guess, the separation between the mounting screws is much larger on that machine.
The separation between the mounting screws on my 10L is 1.25 inch, and the distance beween the centerline of the mounting screws, and the spindle centerline is 4.5 inch. Almost looks like that's what I see on your scale held up to the part.
1) I don't have a follower rest for that H9 - but I do have what I think is an original steady rest, and there is no unit code number on it. Again the style of the fingers and the pusher screws, quite similar. Have not checked the dimensions on the mounting holes yet.
Yeah my big regret is the shop's not big enough to bring it into the basement. But it's warm and dry and fully functional. Keeps my motorbikes company.
I shortened the chip pan to make it look even more petite. BTW if the deal falls through (yeah right...) put me next in line please.
looks pretty good to me

didn't spend a bunch of time fiddling with it as I had other stuff on my plate, but the bolts fit perfectly and the center height is spot on. I thought it was off center horizonally until I realised I could just move the cross slide It'll take a bit of practice to get use to..
