1941 South Bend 13″ Lathe Restoration – Part 2 – Tailstock

Decided to start “simple” and rebuild the tailstock. Such a seemingly simple object is comprised of quite a few pieces. I used a refurbishing guide I got from eBay (link below) along with a kit of consumables to rebuild the lathe. Although the book doesn’t have every detail of every difference on these lathes, there’s enough there to make disassembly and reassembly possible.
