Fitting the toolposts - this might need some study. The following is an outline of what you might have to do: The units require a top slide with either: a) a T slot b) a stud that passes through to end as a circular flange that sits in a circle machined into the roof of the upper top-slide casting (this is a common way of securing an ordinary toolpost and spreads the load across the top of the casting) c) a screw-in stud (only used on older or cheaper new lathes) Supplied with the unit is a block of steel into which is threaded the central retaining stud. The steel block can be milled to form a suitable T-nut, or to replicate the circular retaining flange. If no milling facilities are available to make the T-nut, instead the block can be turned to make a disc thick enough to enter the wider part of the T-slot in the top slide and then the edges filed flat so that it enter the slot and so prevented from turning. If the "circular-flange" fitting is used, the block can be machined to suit and the stud provided screwed in and loctited With a simple screwed in stud (this is now very rare) - a suitably long replacement will have to be made, or the casting tapped to accept the one provided.

NEW HIGH-QUALITY, UK-MANUFACTURED T-SLOTTED CROSS SLIDES suitable for all South Bend and Boxford lathes of 4.5" and 5" centre-height. Ready to fit and use with gib strip and recessed degree scale. The design of the slide has recently been revised to improve its versatility and now includes a slot across the front - as well as three to the rear - and machined sides. The T-slots are spaced the same distance apart as those on a Myford lathe and thus the milling slide from maker can be used. These modifications allow the unit to be more easily used as a small boring table - and provide flat, vertical locations against which other items can be registered. The later type of "inset" rotational scale for the top slide is included, so the unit can be left on the lathe for regular operations as well. Fully machined and ready to fit. Your existing cross-feed screw and nut just transfer across. Another advantage of the slide its that, unlike the standard unit, it’s a full-length type and so provides a more rigid platform for the top slide - as well as evening out way on the cross-slide ways.
