I have a South Bend SBL400 that did not come to me with a steady rest. I have found a steady rest that may work but is short by an eighth of an inch in height. It also misses the Vee way laterally by an eighth of an inch. Fixing the flat is the easy part. The Vee could be built up with welding with cast iron electrodes and machined to the right dimensions. The Vee is where the real problem is. I would like to get some opinions here as to how others might approach this and possible solutions. I have looked for a direct replacement but none available so far. Thanks.
