    this is going to be a good project. it`s a basically sound machine that needs a few minor repairs. i`ll need to make a couple gears and maybe?? a tailstock quill - the quill looks like a shop made replacement and could be fitted a bit better. maybe i should have haggled?

      Tailstock: some Logans will fit right in (bonus for me, my Sheldon was unmarked, the Logan replacement is marked every 1/8th inch...I just used the whole works as mine was square thread and Acme is so much easier)...the spacing/bushing and lube system may have to be modified a bit if you use the Logan

        Thats a good purchase , look after it and you should get many years of service, by the way you suck.
