Ok, you wrote Logan and I read South Bend. Hmm....

I think the mechanism is the same. And "How to 
Run A Lathe" is still worthwhile.

Fortunately, you have an additional resource. Scott
Logan supplies a lot of parts and information for 
the lathes his grandfather built. He has this web
site, . He also 
runs Logan Acuator, a real company.
