    South Bend published complete detailed instructions on fitting a taper attachment to a lathe which was not factory fitted.

    These may be found many places. They are on the southbendheavy10 group and I think on the main southbendlathe group.


    I will try to attach them here.

    I have been following the taper attachment thread and wanted to jump in with a question.  I have a 13” SB (same bed as a heavy 10).  I swapped out the carriage and bed with another lathe that had less wear on the ways.  The original carriage had a taper attachment.  The new carriage does not have the two dowel pin holes on the rear for the taper attachment.  

    Any suggestions or ideas on how I would align the two and drill new holes for the dowel pins?   I had thought about drilling new holes using the taper attachment as a guide and then reaming them oversize.  I could also pour babbit around the pins once the taper attachment was adjusted so the cross feed screw ran true.    Has anyone gone down this path?
