My 9C bed measures about 36.5" (overall bed length)
Maybe your lathe is actually a 3.5' bed, and it's mis-marked?

Thanks for checking, George. That makes for a bit of a mystery, though... I believe this lathe to be completely stock, with all of the original parts it came with (even the "How To Run A Lathe" book), and the serial number card (I ponyed up the $25 to order it from Grizzly) shows it as a 9"x3'. Considering my Dad's economic situation at the time, I would have expected hi to get the absolute cheapest model available, which this is in every other way (6-speed, model 'C'). So, why does the bed measure 42" (that's overall, end-to-end, from the left side of the headstock to the far right end)? Are we measuring the same place?
