Re: Take a look at this 10K (possible restoration project) Pictures attached.
The "school" lathes usually have less wear than production lathes but
the student "dings" in compounds and ways are the flip side of that
coin. The rust on the ways looks pretty serious especially on the
tailstock end. If you decide to do this it will be a labor of love
and I'm sure you will have lot's to tell us about the process.
Personally I'd pass on this as a restoration project, but then the
two lathes in the basement now looked pretty scuzzy when I brought
them home. If it was cheap, it would be a source of parts for the
real project you start with the next SB you find.
