    John is correct, but they also require a different cross feed top casting as well as the screw. I will venture to say that you will not find an original for sale, they are very scarce and were only...

    Ted, all these 10L have the 36" bed and no TA, lot # 75 and # 84. But I stand corrected on lot # 92. It is stated that it too has a 36" bed, but I am pretty sure it is the 42" and it does have a TA.

    For such an experienced person, I'm shocked with your TA opinion. On the additional space increase that a TA adds it just is not true. On the SB cabinet machines the added distance, 7.5",does not...

    I had one of these mills and just recently sold it. Those motors are non-existent. The schematics for your machine are based on your serial number. They were custom from the factory and unique to...

    To the OP, the prices are very reasonable. The SB10L lathes are the short bed variety and have no TA, those are detractions. They all have transposing gears and those are super scarce and a big plus....

    You are not being realistic. Buying a decent lathe for $2,000 is not realistic in any size. This is especially true if it has chucks and tooling with it. Small machines hold their value much longer...

    George, I can't believe inserts cannot be found. I know it can be difficult, but try shopping by size required. If all else fails, contact Sandvik, they are usually very helpful. Nobody wants to see...

    Perhaps my preference of R8 over a 30 taper is misunderstood. Yes, the 30 taper is more stout, but only by a bit. Certainly the difference does not warrant the cost difference of tooling. Both R8 and...

    These coolant tanks need to be skimmed and cleaned periodically. It is always a nasty job. I cannot imagine just how difficult and nasty that task would be with your balls........jus' sayin.

    I would never consider a 30 taper because of tool holder costs and availability alone. The R8 standard is world wide common. Before you pull the trigger,do your own tool cost comparison. Keep in mind...

    Yes, it can be done, but you have to be careful it will work in your case. The way it is handled is that the RS 232 message is wrapped in a IP data block then sent and unwrapped at the distant end....

    The return shipping can exceed the end value in both cost and time wasted.......that's why. Buying shit from China is not like buying stuff in the local hardware store.

    I bought a clone 10 years ago with a factory installed 3 axis DRO. The Z axis is on the knee and is dead accurate. Having a quill read out as an extra is also very handy and worthwhile as well.
