Re: Looking for headstock clamp for 1916 18"

Agreed. No bearing surface needed. On my 16" there is even a pin that locates the headstock so you could not slide it even if you wanted to.

If you did move it then it would affect gear alignment.

  I wouldn't use steel as it isn't a good bearing metal for an application such as this.  If all you have is steel, put some braze on the rubbing surfaces and then machine it smooth, or fit brass slippers.

  I once broke the tailstock clamp on my SB-9.

Subject: [SOUTHBENDLATHE] Looking for headstock clamp for 1916 18"    This is the headstock clamp at the end of the lathe. It is marked "13 16 18", so there appears to be some commonality among sizes. The one I have is cracked in half, and I would be interested in any leads on finding a replacement for it. A composite photo is attached. Thank you for your help.  Greg Mekkes
