14 1/2 x 72 here, mfg 11/24/48. Old South Bends are like old Harley's,
if they aren't dripping oil on the floor you aren't lubing them right.
Thought a few times about upgrading to something with a bit more
headstock bore, but the day my lathe rolled off the line is also
the exact day my parents got married---haven't forgotten their
anniversary since I bought the lathe.
