What is the total length of the tube?

I'm very fond of a tool room lathe or a chucker because of the stops but I'll bet an old basic South Bend could be had for 500 bucks including the 3 jaw chuck.

While you build a nice product I don't see the need for you to work with .001 repeats in your stops so the SB fits IMO.

I've only been out of the trade for 26 years or so.
