    And a new hardways bed with a worn saddle & tailstock is better than a worn bed with a worn saddle & tailstock.

    Another suggestion - Sell a Moglice Kit w/ the bed!

    One more suggestion - Sell the lathe beds only, I'm sure there are a number of people with whipped out beds that would love to upgrade.

    Clausing is very good about shipping blue prints for the shaper parts that are no longer on hand. Ask them. I did & got the ratchet case blue prints.

    Not sure what this is? It was in the 'box of bits'

    That is a South Bend part, I just can't recall where I saw it at.

    South Bend milling attachment. Should net you $200-$300 if you want to part with it. Allows you to do LIGHT milling cuts in the lathe.

    I would not worry about thread wires at this point. I'm thinking more to confirm it is a 1 1/2x8 thread on all items.

    Use your calipers (you have a set, right?), put the jaws in line with the...

    Paul -

    I know you said the spindle thread is over sized, but did you actually measure the OD or are you just saying it seems that way? Have you measured the ID of your chucks & thread protector?...

    27 is odd which means it DOES NOT divide 360 evenly. Every turn, you would get 13 1/3 degrees movement. I'm not going to say it is impossible, just you are so likely to make an errors clocking...

    Hal -

    Second on the jig. I will add that 'timg' sells new made in USA jigs for $75 on eBay as well. A true SBL set usually goes for $150 to $300. Unless you like to collect SBL items or object...

    6K - for 10" (10K)
    3C - for 9"

    I'm sorry, but I just gotta say I think .008 is nothing worth great concern. If you think, a plus minus .005 means a rod can vary by .010 over its length. I'm not going to say you are wrong for...

    I've been told that the cast base lathes are less prone to vibration issues.
