The Myfords do not have power cross feed unless you pay double for them. Probably the only one of it's kind and a must for any serious Myford collector.

Myford Super 7B lathe with Norton gearbox. By the way, I was puzzled by the topslide on your lathe until I remembered something I read on the lathes.

Has the desired long bed with second motor pulley for higher spindle speed. The dimensions of the original spindle - 1.
