Sheraton "9-Inch" lathe. The best Manual for the Sheraton is the one produced in England for the South Bend clone by Boxford. Unlike the South Bend book "How to Run a Lathe" this 137-page edition concentrates in detail on the 9-inch lathe, not the whole range, and thus contains much more information about how to operate it as well as many screwcutting charts, lists of changewheels set-ups as machines left the factory, metric conversions and other valuable data. A few mechanical details are different but the operating procedures are identical.
