    1. you can experiment with trying to bend the pipe with jacks, but that is not a very precise method
      better to try to replace the pipe with one from a plumping shop, that would require a lot of work getting the new pipe smooth enough to work
      that lathe is a common design with sears (and other manufacturers) from the same time period
      I would check craigs list and other online sales platforms (facebook ususally has a local yardsale group) and try to find a old lather for parts
      I’ve gotten several sears lathes as give aways from craigs list, and they use the same main pipe
      kinda surprised the pipe has sag, I have 3 of that type of lathe and none have sag
      Good Luck
