229956RE: Lathe Bed Regrinding
- Feb 3, 2014
The depth of wear on the 90 degree ridge, near the headstock, is .004". The ridge nearest the operator is .002". Hmmm. Am I being too picky?

Folks, I did find an outfit in Detroit that had excellent references (from a machine rebuilder) they are Advance Precision grinding. The person I spoke to was Bill, and he said that their going rate for smaller lathe beds is $100/ft. That would make it about $500 for the regrind on this lathe. I did have bids all the way up to $2500, so it just shows that this is somewhat of a supply / demand problem.
