Re: Homemade SB 9" Gap Bed?

I see pictures and discussion of a large restored south bend gap lathe of that period.
It's the 1930 South Bend S/N 47150, silent chain, gap bed model. It turns 14.5" and 22" with the gap.

It is seen in a tire shop. Guess they "modified" the lathe to turn disks or
drums. I have seen very early gap lathes. Is there any chance this is one of
those with the gap filler removed? From the picture the gap does not look smooth
an precisely manufactured.

Yikes, that is quite a wreck. Me thinks a FULL trade for donuts and coffee cake
would be appropriate!
