  • south bend V angle

    anyone out there know the vee angle on the bed of a south bend 13 inch lathe. It looks like the angles are at a 45 by the eye. So I wittled on a block of metal in the shaper to cut the angles but it doesn't feel like a good fit.
    any help would be appreciated I am trying to make a dial indicator holder.
    thanks Mike

    To get that perfect fit on one of mine, I laid abrasive paper on the way and lapped it in.

      The vee ways on a South Bend are 90آ° included angle.

        thanks for the replys Joel and Evan. I kinda figured it was a ninety, the ways must be a little worn, plus maybe the angle gauge on the shaper head might be off, I will keep playing with it for the proper fit.
        thanks Mike
