      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 have tools I don't even know I own...

                  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).

                    Will you come over and help me get it up the drive way?

                    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 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!
