    It looks like it even has a taper attachment. Be sure that you get professionals to do the moving for you, and that they only lift from the bed. Don't let them lift across the leadscrew or carriage.

    Bronze bearings? If so, I would guess that they are slightly out-of-round. If so, they may have to be coaxed back into round.

    3/32" is quite a lot. What does the droop of the tailstock look like?
