South Bend "clone"

sandbsabel <clive.wood@...>

Hi, I have just acquired a Smart & Brown lathe that I believe is a
clone of the 9inch South Bend.
Is there anyone out there who can provide any tips on restoration - in
particular, what is the best way to deal with bed wear?
I am on the lookout for a screwcutting gearbox as the lathe is a model
S (no gearbox or power cross-slide).
I am very impressed with the build quality which appears to be as good
South Bend.
