    Default Thoughts on this SB 10K light

    Southbend Metal Lathe Machine tools - tools - by owner - sale $2600

    I'd rather have a cabinet model, but I need to start somewhere!

    Looks fine to me. The tooling is a big selling point.

    Things are probably different down there, but in this area lathe benches come up for sale pretty frequently.

    Lots of bits. These are great machines and very useful. I prefer the behind drive over the below cabinet drive, they are easier to service. I have the same model although mine is a later model. Does it have a set of metric change gears? Finding these with a TA is actually quite rare.

    Yep the tooling package makes the deal !! Steady-follow rests ,taper attachment etc. A decent bench and tool post and you are set.

    If you are looking for a small lathe you better be getting in your truck and head for Lamesa.

    Hopefully for the one you originally posted. It's got everything, and I think I can even make out an Aloris style tool post in one of the photos.

    Congrats, very nice looking lathe. One stop shopping.

    I've gotten decent lathes both ways (hey, a double pun!), complete with tooling plus extra and without any tooling at all...

    On the used market you take what comes alone, either way can be a win. Fair bit of kit there, you done well...
