I was quoted about 400-500 dollars if I bring in my lathe bed, to have
it reground. The bed is relatively worn (carriage drops about 0.002 inch
near headstock), and the rest of the lathe is not.
I am ending my ebay selling soon, so I will have some more time.
If applying turcite and re-scraping the saddle is not too much, I will
have them do it too. My thinking is that after this, I will have a
lathe that is as good as a new one.
My current question is, how hard is it to take the headstock off this
clausing colchester master, and, no less important, how to align it
again once I get the bed casting back home.
