Thanks for the feedback. I just spent the better part of this afternoon going over my SB. It's needing a lot of work to bring it back to a decent spec. I simply do NOT have the time for that. It runs and all the feeds work OK but the ways are a bit worn and everything has a lot of backlash. I think it's time to post it up on Craigslist and just pull the trigger on a 12" lathe.
Take a look at the Precision Matthews 12x36 lathe. It's a terrific machine. You can also connect here with "RayC". He's the man to talk to about all things PM. Also, when you call PM at Quality Machine Tools, ask for Matt. He's the owner and a hell of a good guy, in addition to being a supporter of this site and a regular here too.
