Gentlemen, 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 3 JC 4 JC 2 face plates tool holder tapering tool steady rest 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.
