    South Bend 9a upgrade question

    When you are asking about upgrades? is this for the lathe itself, or for accessories to go with it? When I purchaced mine a few years back, it came with a 4C collet speed chuck. Which is nice. I have since adapted a dividing head set up, that can be attached to the spindle, among other things...

    Need lathe dogs - which ones?

    a while back I needed a 2" lathe dog. Ended up making one out of a 2" nut, and welded a 1/2" round stock on the side. one other mod that I have done is put brass inserts on the screws so the threads or what ever I have placed in the dog will not get marked up.

    Looking for parts

    Also any help with an indexing plate. (Universal, custom built) looking for something I can bolt on possibly. I see that you are looking for an indexing plate, all I can say is look at the Utube videos, and see what others have done, then you will have to find something and adapt it to what...

    What have you made FOR your South Bend?

    I finally finished up this project. turned out a plunge pin for the 24 detent holes on the gear, with a notch. so it can be disengaged when using the indexer. then made a mounting bracket connected to the cabinet. the final straw to get this done was when I attempted to drill 3 holes in a dust...

    Mystery Black Powder Rifle

    thanks, I have been looking at the Mowry and Allen & Thurber models, they are close, but all the pictures I come across, the plate that covers the action is of a different design, and none have the action opened up to see how they are assembled. I do like how the ramrod tube and part that holds...
