Looking to purchase SB CL145B for gunsmithing, thoughts??
I'm new to the world of lathe owning and am considering buying a South Bend CL 145B from a fine gentlemen near where I live. Here's what I know so far about it.
13"X60"??? Flame Hardened centers (not sure if the gears are hardened)
1-3/8" spindle hole
2 face plates
What are you're thoughts on this lathe?
It'll be primarily used to thread and chamber barrels.
I'm looking at it again tomorrow and will probably make a decision as well.
Thank you in advance for any inputs.
