...I‘d be looking for a solid table like small mill or surface grinder to base it off of...
This lathe bed is solid and heavy so should be a good base.
I guess I was using wrong terminology. What I called a cross slide is ,I think, the saddle. There is no other parts of the carriage with it though. No feed parts or top. There is a rack under the front edge of the bed. I will probably build a quick traverse mechanism to engage that rack and also an electric powered feed screw for future OD grinding
I have a small rotary table with X and Y movements that will go on top of the saddle as one piece of the tooling system.
