    Default 1942 Heavy 10

    I don't have a photo of what it looked like when I first set it in the garage, but there is one after I started digging to find out what might be wrong with it. Since the bearing caps on this old 10L are so much easier to cope with than the newer ones with the split bearings, I pulled the spindle and I'm glad I did. The thrust bearing was missing balls. I wound up tearing it all the way down and painting it. I had to make an adapter for the new thrust bearing and I have to make a new shaft for the sliding gear and I'm working on putting turcite on the saddle ways, but it works as is until I get those things done. Here's a couple before and a couple of after.

    I recently acquired this 11-A lathe, I've read that it's a pretty rare lathe that was only made for a couple of years. Does anyone have anymore information on it? 11" swing 4' bed, catalog #8111A

    Just bought mine a few weeks ago at an auction seems to be all there except the guts to the tail stock so I will need to find that hopefully a fellow member has that piece they are willing to part with.
    I am sure I will have questions during my restoration so thank you in advance for the help.

    Here is the only machine I have ever personally owned. I spent 24 years as an Air Force Machinist so never had the urge to purchase anything until I retired and no longer had access to all that fancy equipment. Well this one isnt too fancy but it will get the job done I hope. Bought it last week at an estate sale. Anything that looked machinist related including dial indicators I put on the table and the guy sold it all to me LOL including the one drill bit in the tail stock. I give $450 what do yall think seemed fair to me?

    Default My New2Me GS26-075

    Hello
    My name is Mickey and this a great thread and I thought I would let everyone see my not so heavy 10,LOL.This was a fantastic Craigslist purchase,got the machine and a boatload of tooling after watching for a Heavy 10 in my area for a few years,although not specifically the machine I was looking for it was way too good to let it go,and it was only a 12 hour round trip.Been searching for any and all information I can find on these machines,I believe it is circa 1990's,although not sure?
    Grizzly,Leblond,has been no help.Latheman Ted has been great on info and had a fantastic manual,and metric transposing gear set for me,also AMW(Mal)has been a big help with a few parts,such as a steady and follow rest.Decent later model machine,WILL start a complete teardown and restoration this spring.img_1409.jpgimg_1410.jpgimg_1413.jpgimg_1414.jpgimg_1415.jpg

    New here. This is my Junior 9, acquired last August from a guy in Orlando. It is stuffed into my laboratory (closet sized) with all my other projects until I can relocate it to the shed at my man cave. After removing seventy years or so of accumulated gunk the lathe cleaned up pretty well and has much of its original paint. The motor mount is a bit hillbilly, but it works fine. The backplate for the three jaw chuck is stuck on the spindle (i'm guessing it hasn't been removed since before WWII) bit I am still able to use 3C collets. Tuning it up as I go but it has been accurate enough for what I do so far.....

    Did not like the weight of the collet rack hanging on the bed so I moved it to the lip of the bench/chip pan.

    Nice lathe man this is the type of lathe I have been looking for. No luck so far.

    Default 1941 9C - Original colour?

    So, you know how it goes, I needed a lathe. Well, actually I wanted a lathe...
    Just fooling around on eBay I discovered one for sale 10 miles away, for under £200 (I'm in the UK, BTW). I'd never heard of South Bend, did a bit of research and fell in love, especially as it's very similar in design to my father's lathe at work, a Simonet (Swiss made precision lathe) on which he taught me to turn back in the '60s (he worked for Timex in West London, I used to go in with him at weekends.)
    2 days later it was here, so I fixed an NVR, a reversing switch plus an emergency stop button.

    But the spindle was a bit tight (in fact, there is zero play in the whole lathe, the previous owner was a carpenter so I suspect he got a bit carried away? But the shims don't look as thought they've been touched...). My mounting area was a different configuration so I needed to change the drive belt. One thing led to another and now here it is in the first stage of being stripped down! New wicks / rebuild kit on order. I just need to degrease 76 years of hard oil and grime, and then, of course, it would be rude not to repaint it...

    The colour and finish is confusing. Colour is an exact match for Rustoleum Arctic Blue (just Google that phrase.) Threads here suggest it should be blue/grey as it's post '39? (Rustoleum Pale Roundel Blue is 99% a match for what I've seen.) But I've also seen one image here somewhere for a 1941 ex-military SB9 which is pretty much the same colour? But again, the whole tailstock handwheel is painted blue, that's not original? And the apron handwheel has red spokes? But nowhere can I see any evidence of another colour lurking underneath? (The painted change wheels are another colour altogether!) Even the inside of the bed is the same colour? Has someone stripped this already then done a bad repaint?

    Finally, any clues how it got to England? As a 1941 piece it's well into World War II (or as you guys in the US say, just pre-WWII!) Was it supplied to the UK as part of the war support, or was it taken off, say, a US warship after the war? I can't imagine this was privately shipped during the war, nor shipped as private baggage any time after that?

    Next it's on with oven cleaner then into electrolytic baths...
    Hopefully in a few months there will be an "after" photo to show off my handiwork.
    Meanwhile, any pointers / tips will be much appreciated.

    This belonged to my late husband who restored the machine and would run it off of our hurricane generator.1.jpg

    Good evening,
    I have the very same lathe with cabinet and same vintage. I am in the process of painting it now. Using Rustoleum enamel-gray. Been struggling with what color to paint or powder coat the cabinet. I like your drip tray. How did you get it to look like stainless (mine has old paint on it). Alsohow complicated was it to take out the motor and undermount stuff from the cabinet? Not looking forward to that. Thanks, Keith
