    I think he started with an angle plate, and got the mill attach directly over the crosslide with no overhang
    Thanks for the tip, I used to watch all his videos, But he's got so many of them that I got lost So now I'm gonna look for that one. He does a lot of south bend and bridgeport stuff I recall.

    Does it mount that way? The SB did, but the pic looks a lot more like it mounts on the compound. And it has the look of an earlier version of mine...I still have a Palmgren milling attachment, it looks much like that.

    Your plan of ditching the compound mounting is wise. There is just too much overhanging weight with the Palmgren to work well with the Logan, which is similar in size to the SB. Then you add the workpiece.

    Nope. She'll get used, but well cared for.

    Thanks! yup, I'm pumped. Got it in the house by muscle power, and up on the bench the same way.
    It's going to have a nice well-cared-for life. The biggest question is gonna be who inherits it.
    I don't think I'm gonna add any noticeable wear.

    I bought Logan 10 inch as my "first lathe". It looked a lot like that SB, only grungy with sulfur oil. Came from a closing Air Conditioning shop, so it was in good shape.

    Boy! Did I make a lot of money with that machine. I sold it though, bought a house , and more machines ;-)

    That Logan lathe is likely all worn out now. The young fellow who bought it was building up his shop. He had work, he kept saying.

    I helped him break down and load the machine in his pickup, then drove over and helped unload it at his place. I was young then as well.

    Yup. I bet it's all worn out by now.....

    How slow did you drive?
    I once drove from Buffalo to Ohio to get a BJ and it only took 3 hours.
    ( the drive, unfortunately not the BJ).
    By the way, nice score. You must feel like an axle without a wheel !

    Actually didn't know there was a town called Northeast. Went thru 390 south to 15/80 eastbound to zip 18225. Went 65 the whole way mostly. Cops at the bottom of the hills...

    Ja, it was a one-in-a-lifetime score, either do it or hate yourself forever kinda thing. You know how it is when you're only gonna get one chance.

The shop I worked in was old school to the extreme to be sure, but I don't remember seeing 4 ways, much less QC even then in the late '70's. Nice find in any case!
    You're right, the lathe came with the lantern post and some tooling, but I swapped on the 4-way. I just don't have the patience for lantern posts. Makes it easier to grind the bits when they're always going to be at the same height.
