Hi all: This sounds similar to my old SB. I like it! Anyone out there in comp land, this thing will weigh about 1800 lbs. Check out SWells in Practical Machinist as he might have more info about this. He also may be able to tell exactly when this thing was built and who got it first. He is really good! Mine has two cast SB legs for stability and, as I say here, I like mine: its small enough to fit in a space a little bigger than a regular size (?!) lathe but is heavier to handle the bigger work. Mine has two removable inserts in the lathe bed. Whoever gets, wants, that lathe, I paid about 1000 to get it to my place (350 mi) on a flat deck car trailer including purchase price. Unless badly worn (check run out), I think you should be happy. Wayne
