Wow! Can I come and see that? I need some tips on how to make mine look like that, seeing as how it’s almost completely torn down right now for the rebuild.
I talked to a man today who was a machining school instructor for many years. He said NOT to machine the bottom of my saddle to fix the wear because that will make it sit hard on the apron gear. I guess it will have to be built up in some manner to fix it, or just replace it if I can find one.

Here's a picture of my lathe that I call "Latheman Special".
It is a customized 12 3/4" South Bend.
