    South Bend C9-10JR 9x24

    I hate to cut down this lathe , but their's no power cross feed and the long feed is powered by engaging the half nuts not a clutch . I would check and see if the half nuts are still good.

    Stuart No. 4 build

    Simon ,so far your works looks nice as always. For Lapping I have used a product called Timesaver Lapping Compound according to the label it's "guaranteed not to imbed in metals" , and "guaranteed not to continue to cut" . I bought the yellow label stuff and it states "for soft metals only". Jeff
