Re: 1964 10K headstock cover question

Ah, looking at your pictures again, you must have a rear-mount drive (It looks like the bottom of the headstock is visible, and that would certainly be different, if that's what I think it is.).  I don't think I can help, but let me know.

I do have the guards, for mine, and I can post pictures if that's useful.  I'm unsure from your message: *is* your lathe an underdrive unit? Mine is -- which will probably make a bit of a difference here.

Hi guys and gals

Winter is approaching and I hope to have the time to reassemble my 10K.
This machine didn't come with the belt/gear guard in place when I acquired it.
The headstock casting is not the same as a 9" and is not the same as the underdrive units I have seen online.

 This lathe was bench mounted when I found it, but had no guard in place at the time.
The machine was disassembled for refinishing as it had been in a fire, but didn't get hot enough to destroy it.
I probably have 200 hours or more invested in it for the teardown, disassembly and refinishing.

I used my glass bead cabinet for a lot of the cleaning, plus have my Logan 922 11 inch for some of the round polishing work.

I'm retired now with over 50 years on the shop floor, so hopefully my work does speak for itself.

Can anyone help me identify it so I can track one down?
My rebuild manual was of no help, so even a picture or so of an existing one would be helpful.
