    Evening guys.
    Just out of interest do any of you chaps have a southbend heavy 10. I don't need another lathe (yet) but really like the look of a heavy 10.

    Worth a few bob even with the missing compound. Wish it wasn't 600 miles away.

    Really old design but successful. Boxford and many other clones copied the saddle arrangement on their lathes and other just copied everything. The mainstay of many home workshops. The larger ones used the same design.
    I would buy one but not at that price.

    The heavy 10 has one advantage over just about every other lathe in it's size and weight class - the spindle bore is 1-3/8".

    The one in Rannsachair's link is especially desirable, take a closer look at it, then look at this.
