I have a three inch live bullnose for my SB9. Handy sometimes when I turn PVC pipe.

Handy item! I just used the 3" bullnose on my SB9" today for polishing a 454 Chevy crankshaft. Worked great!

i think i may have seen that lathe(or a similar one) when i was at Hildebrand's a few weeks ago. you should see this monster planer he got in. he said the bulk of it was in a pit 12' deep so the working surfaces were at normal floor height. they were still bringing in truckloads of pieces to it when i was there.
most of his stuff is a bit big for hobby use, but i guess it depends on your definition of big. once things get over 5000 pounds, i consider that starting to get big. he does have a bunch of nice 3' to 4' lathes though (Hardinges and such).

Dave I am goung to buy it!
Will you come over and help me get it up the drive way?
Please say yes. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif
Remember when we get it up the hill you'll need to hold it steady while I go for some styrofoam blocks to wedge it up so's it's level http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif Alistair

I don't think styrofoam will hold it laddie, it might require meatloaf blocking. And you know what they said about bringing that stuff back into the UK - You know I can't prove it don't have mad cow desease, I know a mad cow cooked it - me sis - ow! stop hitting me with that meatloaf! http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif
