11-28-2003, 11:58 PM
Hi again folks, hope you merican cousins dint eat too much turkey http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif anyway I have had a chip tray made for my SB9 model "C" 3 foot, now I want to drill the holes in the tray for the lathe feet. I know I can take the dimensions off of the lathe itself, but it seems to me that at one time I seen these dinensions someplace, and as the lathe is still bolted in place I'd like to drill the holes befor hand. As you know, any help will be appreciated. Jim

Can't help you with numbers, but a "slide in tray" would be easy to clean.

(besides this forwards you)

On my 9C the mounting bolts are out in the open...so I'm thinking that yours must be different.(?)

I think I'd be inclined to measure them, anyway. Who knows...South Bend may have changed their mind several times on hole spacing over the years.
