    Default WTB: SB 10L Tailstock (base only or complete)

    I'm looking for a tailstock base with low wear for my SB 10L. I'll buy a complete tailstock if necessary, if it is in nice condition.

    I will ask you for this measurement before purchasing: Measurement request: 10L tailstock base thickness

    I've been looking for one since posting that thread, but not many available at the moment. Only one on Ebay, typical prices and it looks like pretty heavy wear.

    Still looking, the base should be marked 51R2 or 51R3, thanks.

    I thought you bought a new base from Grizzly?

    I can have a look at mine later today. I bought the Tailstock base from South Bend about 35 years ago when i had them re-grind my bed. The machine has not seen enough use since then to wear the base plate. I'll be back...

    Sorry, I am not selling, I posted the thickness over in your request for measurement thread.

    I was curious what I should have done 30 years ago when i bought the new base. Needless to say i just installed it and went on my way.

    Is there a tweaking needed for the part? Part No is 51R1, 0.8995" thick. Nio felt wipers.

    Thanks for the measurement. Yes I did purchase a base from Grizzly, it was a 51R1 like yours and when I realized it did not have wipers I returned it and kept looking for a 51R2 or 51R3.

    I've had pretty bad luck trying to find this part. There's not much available on Ebay, I found one but it was misadvertised and it was actually for a 10K. Found another but it has also been modified. Ebay sucks lately.
