    It wasn't common, but handy enough there are several lathes with "similar' features, basic crude strap to geared rack (Cazeneuve).

    I don't think it actually makes as much difference as ceasing to chronically rob it might.

    I vote for using the same juice as surfacing and threading gearbox. WHATEVER that is.

    I once asked Brian to fab me a longer bar than his usual. He declined.

    Figured he knew more than I did as to what was practical, so I went with what he had shipped me, standard.

    It "could be" a #13 Jarno.

    Jarno 18, truncated, is more in line with Monarch spindle practice.
