    Default Is this a 10K steadyrest?

    I recently acquired a large lot of lathe tooling, which included this steadyrest. It measures 5" from the flat way surface to the center. I identified it as SB 10K, listed it on Ebay and sold it. Buyer said it wasn't for a 10" lathe. Huh? Come to find out he had a 10L and a Logan 10", said it wouldn't fit either of them, shocker. Just like to confrm it is 10K before I try selling it again.
    Thank you very much, Jim Bishop

    Doesn't look like my 10K steady. Mine has the knob adjustments with round fingers.

    Upon confirmation I may like to purchase it.

    can you take an exact measure from the notch of the v way to the center of the flat way...from here it looks about 3.5" or so?

    And is it truly 5" from flat to the split?

    Well shame on me, paying a little more attention, it actually measure 4-5/8" from the flat to the split. Center of the vee to the center of the flat is 3". Just noticed the top casting is stamped 126NR1 and the bottom casting is stamped 125N1. With this info, more likely it is for a SB 9"?

    If iwananew10k passes, I'd be interested in buying it.

    ??? Are my eyes fooling me? Center of v to center of flat looks about 3.5" on my screen....certainly more than 3"?


    hold while i consult the oracle on the casting numbers.

    Weird, took another pic, that is also deceiving. I can assure you the "1" on the tape is aligned with the center of the vee, and the "4" is centered in the middle of the flat.

    3" would make it for a 9" workshop series....darn 5/8" more and I'd be all over it.

    Pass to Derek.
