    48” Featherweight Camelback Straightedge Pattern is Taking Shape.

    18 received! I can't wait to get it on the machine and start scraping it. Packaging was great and the casting appears to be high quality. Thanks again Denis.

    FS Heavy 9/Junior 9 Headstock with spindle, no pulleys/backgear

    From what I understand, the width of your bed and the height of your spindle will matter for fit. That being said, the rest of the parts to finish it out if you are substituting yours will more than likely also make a difference. Maybe post a photo of yours and let those more knowledgeable...

    FS Heavy 9/Junior 9 Headstock with spindle, no pulleys/backgear

    The bearings look to be in excellent shape. The spindle when turned by hand has less than 0.001" runout. I am looking for offers. I know the person I got it from paid around $150 on ebay.

    South Bend Heavy 9?

    I think I'm going to just sell it instead to someone who can utilize it rather than try and build it. Thank you to everyone who helped by sharing information on the headstock. Am I allowed to post a for sale in the south bend forum or does it need to be in the classified specific forum?

    South Bend Heavy 9?

    I guess the next question is feasibility of completing the lathe. I know with the 9/10k its easy to find parts and frankenlathe one together, but for this headstock is it going to be a much more difficult project?

    South Bend Heavy 9?

    So a pre 1930s bed or a heavy ten bed with some scraping involved is required to utilize this headstock, correct?

    South Bend Heavy 9?

    Thanks for linking this. The headstock I have does not have holes in the extended "feet" as those pictured in the catalog linked. As I understand, one of the features of the 9 Jr. was that it bolted directly to the bed, vs the clamping system seen in the 9/10k system, and the headstock I have.

    South Bend Heavy 9?

    Very interesting that it would be a special order for the US Navy. To further complicate my confusion, I just double checked and this one actually has a 1-1/2x8 spindle nose (Major OD 1.491).

    Bridgeport mill rebuild questions

    I ended up calling H&W Machinery for an answer to this question. As the info they gave me was helpful, I wanted to close the loop and post it here. They recommended using a chisel and hammer to knock the nut loose. I had already decided to replace the nut so I was okay with the damage I did...

    South Bend Heavy 9?

    I recently bought a lathe and as part of the deal was given some other lathe parts the seller didn't want anymore. One of those was a headstock. The receipt from the seller for the headstock calls it a "Heavy 9/9 Jr. Headstock". I looked at lathes.co.uk for info on the headstock but didn't...
