    South Bend bed dimensions

    I found this on my computer the other day and thought it may be of use for someone making attachments for these machines.
    I can not remember where I found it but as it was freely available I assume it is ok to share it.

    Can barely remember last time I ran a South Bend, other than fact they are certainly enjoyable. But this drawing and dimensions I've NEVER thought to record makes me think how to prepare such a print for Big Ol' Green [<- one and same in portrait to the left].
    The value is two fold, one of course in designing tools/ fixtures. The other reveals size limitations of allowable material.
