    IMO, family heirlooms aren't really yours so much as they remain the belongings of those you are remembering. You're more or less a steward of them, so with that...

    Steve, thanks for that info. So, I think this one is another "Frankenlathe" and I'll probably pass on it. The compound shows evidence of many severe "crashes" into the headstock/chuck (this was a...

    265160

    Ted, thanks for the reply. Could this then be a "Frankenlathe"? What does the CL370Z on the gearbox indicate?

    Additional: The ID is actually CL370ZD.

    SB lathe ID, 9" or 10K?

    Need some help ID'ing a SB. It looks like a 10K to me (has the large dials) and the ID tag indicates it's a "CL370Z" (I think!) model, with a 3-1/2' bed. The SN on the bed is 30675NKR8. It's a...

    tobnpr--- I'm no expert on this, but if the chuck has a removable backplate you could simply "true" it to YOUR lathe's spindle, no? I guess purchasing ANY used 3-jaw would be a gamble, but if the...
