Top Slide / Bearing Mod
Harbor Freight 9 x 20 Lathe

With the cross feed mount so much improved by adding a ball bearing I decided to
do the same to the top slide. With the bearing added the movement is a lot
smoother and it allows the gib screws to be tighter than before the mod.

The new ball bearing mount and the original 9x mount.
