    WTB: South Bend 11" quick-change drive gear / banjo gear

    I think I have found a shop I can cut a new gear for me, but I am curious of your method as well. Please post pictures and a description of the process?

    WTB: South Bend 11" quick-change drive gear / banjo gear

    I got the banjo apart and got a chance to inspect things closer. Once I got the primary gear ans spur off, I noticed something odd: There appears to be some kind of pin or insert where the primary spur and primary gear press together. It looks like it was ground or maybe turned flush, so I...

    WTB: South Bend 11" quick-change drive gear / banjo gear

    My hackerspace's 11" South Bend lathe has taken damage to the gearing that transmits force from the spindle to quick-change gearbox. Specifically, the large 64-tooth gear which meshes with the feed-reverse lever and the sliding gear on the banjo, has had 4 teeth snapped off. I've attached...

    Hackerspace acquires a 1927 584-SB (11"x5.5')

    I wrote Aloris and got some further documentation back and a clarification. Turns out, I'd done the math wrong. 1 1/4" is the upper bound of the adjustment range of the AXA. So the AXA might work on the 11", but it will be maxed out, and have no further room to adjust. I will be closer to the...

    Hackerspace acquires a 1927 584-SB (11"x5.5')

    Some of the members and I are looking to add a Quick-change toolpost to the lathe. I've done some searching, and the consensus seems to be that the AXA is fine for the 9 and Heavy 10, and the BXA is good for the 13 on up. Indeed, on Aloris' website, they recommend the AXA for swings of up to 10"...

    Hackerspace acquires a 1927 584-SB (11"x5.5')

    Not even close enough in the most important dimensions that it could be made compatible? I mean, I have a functional lathe to hand, complete with a 3-jaw chuck, 4-jaw independent chuck, face plates, dogs, centers and even a vertical mount for the compound slide. I also have a vice and rotary...

    Hackerspace acquires a 1927 584-SB (11"x5.5')

    My posts seem to be gated behind moderator approval, probably because I am new here. That's fine, just my posts will be slower coming until I pass the threshold to be trusted to post directly without approval from moderators. Next up are shots of the intermediate shaft and engagement mechanism...

    Hackerspace acquires a 1927 584-SB (11"x5.5')

    As promised, have some pictures. Some general shots of the lathe: Speaking with the previous owner and some of the other members, I do believe the bench the lathe rests on was built by the original owner. The wood planks measure really close to some numbers I found for actual size of...

    Hackerspace acquires a 1927 584-SB (11"x5.5')

    Greetings A South Bend model 584-SB, S/N 37963N, was recently donated to a hackerspace where I am a member. I've not been able to find the 584 explicitly mentioned in a catalog yet, but what catalogs I've been able to find, the setup seems somewhat of a hybrid between the setup of of the 1928...
