1941 South Bend 13″ Lathe Restoration – Part 6 – Cross slide tear down

Next in the disassembly and teardown queue for this lathe was the cross slide. Only a few pieces to it. This lathe had been retrofitted with a larger 250 thousands dial, thus the feed screw and nut were “adapted” for an 8 TPI threaded screw. No real surprises here, except for the dial locking screw was not what it should be. I’m replacing it with a knurled thumb screw and a brass shoe after everything is painted.
