I did more or less the same thing to mount a Taig headstock to my
cross slide to make a grinder attachment. The Taig headstock is just
the right height to match up with the center of the SB 9" spindle
when seated flat on the cross slide. Taig sent me a piece of the
dovetail extrusion to mount the headstock to my home made circular
dovetail. A DC motor from a tread mill from E-bay and a light dimmer
switch with a full wave rectifier completed the project.
I have a Sherline lathe/mill and a similar set up would work with the
headstock from this machine. You would have to make a block to raise
the headstock 3/4" or so to match the SB lathe spindle center
height. The spindle speed might not be high enough for grinding
without the high speed pully option or your own custom pulleys.

That's what I did...sort of. Actually, I turned a circulardovetailed
piece to fit the attachment in place of the compound. It sits ait
on the compound, one or the other.the
compound on their lathe,scaringI've been looking at these on the net but I've never seen one inperson.Would this work!
