    I am completely new to machining and I bought it to learn on. Hope this forum can advise me along the way.

    Wanted to add mine. Model O, but seems to have a few mix and match parts and pieces. The only numbering I can find, at the end of the bed right where is should be, is: "4 44". The first "4" is parallel to the ways, 2" from the end. The second "44", is perpendicular to the ways, and 1" from the end. Not worn, nothing else was ever there...

    Here is my contribution:
    Serial Number 41593A; a 1929 South Bend 9" Junior, catalog no. Y-22 with a three foot bed.
    I purchased it from the grandson of the original owner last month. It had been a family
    keepsake for the past 70+ years, just sitting around, gathering dust and spider webs. Neither
    the son or the grandson used it; grandson didn't know anything about it other than what it was.
    It had floor legs, but last time they were seen was in the 60's. I'm gonna just clean it and
    get it all oiled up to see how she runs and what kind of wear I find. Other than being
    dirty, rusty in places, and all dry, it appears to only had very little use.

    Not sure what I have there's lots of numbers on it. As I understand it's a old navy lathe off of a submarine. 122 usn 4000400 , patent #118930, 1643 3D 1045, scc 341612322201, ser 132436 and a us navy item number. I got into it cheap but I need a few parts

    So I finally got around to buying the serial card for the lathe I posted about quite some time back. Can anyone help me extract any useful information from it? Appreciate any help.

    Useful? Well you know it came with a 1/2 hp motor. Mostly I noticed that all of the boxes for the fancy accessories are not checked. That means that your lathe shipped out as a stripped down bare bones model.

    My serial card tells me that my lathe was a well equipped toolroom Heavy 10 with taper attach, metric gear adapter, coolant pump and micrometer stop.

    The micrometer stop and taper attachment are still with the lathe, everything else has been lost along the way.

    Entirely possible none of it is much use, but you never know

    Picked up another small machine a couple of weeks ago, a Model 9C bench top model with a 3' bed,
    Serial # 1492NCR7.
    From the pictures I had seen, it looked a bit grody so I figured it was just good for parts. Price was very attractive because of what else came with it. When I went to pick it up, I was surprised to find that there was no discernible wear anywhere on it at all. Not even the smallest nick on the compound. Probably end up resurrecting it rather than delegating it for parts.

    I just picked up my 10 this week and plan on stripping her down and rebuilding her so any recommendations on where to get parts and pieces would be great and much appropriated.

    Serial# 7418RKLB
    Catalog# CL187ZB

    Thanks,
    Russell

    My serial is no. 8423hke12. It is a 16/24. Sorry, I don't know anything else other then it was used to lathe slip rings for tanks and it had new babbet bearings poured about 130 hours (of use) before I bought it.

    May be a nice story there. I suspect it never had Babbitt bearings originally

    From about 1955

    Read all about them circa 1958 here

    That would make sense, I've never seen another 16" lathe with an oil cup on the spindle bearing caps.
