I have a 1964 HLVH. A lot of the parts on an HLV are interchangeable with the HLVH. I got new belts for mine,and cleaned the sticky crud off of the variable diameter pulleys. The lathe now runs so smooth that I can set a penny atop the headstock,run the lathe through its speeds,and reverse it without the penny falling over. There's a guy selling castings for the steady rest of both wide and narrow bed Hardinges. I just got mine. Cost in all about $138.00. He sells castings for the taper attachment,too. I have a factory installed DRO on mine,which I never use. It covers part of the "T" slot where the taper attachment goes. I'm a mind to remove the DRO so I can use a taper attachment made from this guy's castings. I hate to remove the DRO,though,so am in a quandry. If you want to know where to go to get the castings,email me at: email@example.com. The castings look just fine .he steady rest is HEAVY,HEAVY,HEAVY. And,I THINK the originals were aluminum,but not sure. One I handled years ago was aluminum.
