Re: [southbend10k] taper attachment [6 Attachments]Thanks Jim!
You made my day. After reviewing the pages, it looks like it would be a good time to fit a new nut and feed screw.

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.

Subject: Re: [southbend10k] taper attachment
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?
