My intent is to make an adapter ala Shipwright's inherited one.

I may add tube extensions anyway. ;)

Guys, I was able to adapt a Mk series "Ponytail" headrest to one of my Model 10s.

It worked just fine, and was strong enough to lift the right end of the bench
off the ground, when I pulled on the bandsaw I had.

Yes, it looked "FrankenSmith" but worked in all respects, except I could no
longer mount a Model 10 extension table on the left end. (A Mark series ext
table WILL fit, though.)

10 ER, stripped down.
Basic 10ER, Parts machine. Will be a semi-dedicated drill-press machine.
10 ER, a "survivor" of the trailer fire, in the back yard, needing restoration. Has a Mk5 headrest. Finally, stripped down.
Numerous parts, for Model 10 stuff. Except for lower saw guard, A and B adapters, I've got it.

Looking for one more, or some 9 inch extension table raisers.

is there a limit to how much sanding you can do on the way bars?

I would think so by the limit of how tight the things on the way tubes will tighten, but I have no experience on that limit, I am sure some here might. I know that did not help much.

How much do you require? I see no practical limit because of the method of the clamps used on the ways.

A more relevant question is, when is it enough?

IMHO when the surface rust is gone. The pits are a visual defect, not a functional one. Too many pits concentrated in one area likely makes it unusable however placing them facing down will make them usable.

Guys, the registration requires close tolerances on the way tubes.
Go easy on sanding them down too much. Get the surface rust
off, and don't worry about the "pits." Pits will hold oil to
lubricate movement.

OK, at a time in my past, I worked on a printing press.
Registration, is the numerous press heads hitting the
same point. (The red,yellow, black and blue inks line
up.)

Registration on a SS, is not that critical, but it is
important. If your way tubes are too small, you'll
have issues. Go gently there.

Also, Mark series way tubes are MUCH thinner, than
my Model 10 tubes. (I've got almost 1/4 inch tube
thickness to play with.)

Yes, Model 10 tubes WILL fit on a Mark series machine.
