    Default 10k vs 10L tail stock

    First of all thank you for all the response and support. I’m restoring as it turns out is a SB 10L (please see my other threads) turns out after beautifully restoring the tail stock it’s for a 9. Aaaaarrrg, getting frustrated. Need a new tail stock. Is there a difference between the tens? Is a 10L tail stock different than a 10k? Help please!!!

    Yes there is a significant difference between the two of them. The 10L bed is much wider than the 10K bed so there is no way a 10K tailstock can fit on a 10L bed.

    Can I just replace the upper portion. The base plate seems to fit just fine. See pic

    I’m restoring as it turns out is a SB 10L
    Second photo in Post #3 is not a 10L, it is a 10K - and the 9 tail stock fits but is of course too low - as the second photo shows

    The heavy 10 - like 10L - is a larger heftier lathe compared to 9 / 10K

    Look at the headstock there is a small hole for what should be a counter shaft. If you look at an old SB catalog it lists as a 10L, even my model number matches the catalog

    You look again... the catalog number you gave was a 10K model number, not 10L. A CL770 is the model number for a 10K.

    Early on you showed us a photo with CL770 Z stamped on the red "tag" on the QC gear box

    You will find 770 Z in this LIGHT 10 catalog on Page 6. Another name for the same lathe you have used frequently in your posts is 10K

    Yep I was misspoken as the pic below will show it’s a 10L. So what are my options for a tail stock? Can I use any part of mine?

    short answer is no.

    could you make it work? yes...but you will be ahead of the game to source one from a 10K and sell the one you have.

    Your lathe is a 10K, based on that headstock...

    What you have there is a 9" tail stock on a 10K lathe.
    Here is a couple of pictures of an extra 9" tail stock I have, set on my 10K bed. 10K tail stock is also shown.

    Easy-peasy fix...

    Just make a 1/2" adapter plate for the base. This will get your center height to the correct 5".

    Almost did something similar with a 1" plate to get an extra 9A tailstock to fit my 11" Sheldon (before I was finally able to locate a correct one).
