I have a 16" South Bend Lathe that is at least 40 years old. No idea how old exactly. The catalog number is CL0117RX. It is missing a tool post. I don't need a QC; I'm just looking for a simple rocker style tool post. Does anyone have a recommendation for a new tool post that will fit properly without machining?

The T-nut size of the original tool post was 2.5" by 2.25" by 0.5". The tool holder slot is 5/8".
