I bought this for my Central Machinery 5 speed lathe. Bolted right up. bed and slots match up pretty well. Now, I had to use a 8-1.25mm tap to clean and finish the threads in the bed for the feet pads to fit well in there. They only went in so far and were too tight. Then, after chasing the threads I put them on with 8mm washers and lock nuts not the ones supplied. Ones supplied were way too big for the feet pads. Finish is overall pretty good and does what it is supposed to do. So, if you have an Excelsior or Central Machinery lathe 5 speed, and want a nice bed extension, this is it.
