I just picked this thing up yesterday and Im trying to find out absolutely anything I can on it. The serial is #45995 and the table casting is 8-24-28. It also came with the belt cutter maker thingy too. It needs a few little thing from what I can see, and I'm here in hopes of some good advice. Figuring out the model will help me a lot when it comes to hunting down parts for it. Thank you for your time and any help you can provide.

Thanks. I’ve been through that site a bit and I think it’s a model 29-11. I was going out on a limb hoping for any additional info.

Mr. Wells will likely reply in the serial thread.

If you want to you can get a copy of the card from South Bend.

the 64,000 dollar question- did you get a stack of gears?

That's a real purdy machine!

Are you going to leave that killer original patina finish on it? I love old machines with original paint jobs!

That looks like a silent chain drive system up on top. I don't know a lot about them, but they sure look cool.

Congrats on your new toy!

I’m gonna leave the finish as is. I really dig the looks of it as it sits. I do believe that is what’s called a silent chain drive. I’m learning a ton about it as I go along. Need to figure out if I have all the correct threading gears and give that a go too. Not too much info on that, that I have found yet

My first lathe was 1933 South Bend and very similar to yours. It looked SO cool and classic. I noted it had a QCGB. It is a bench model and the styled bed legs. It was pretty shot. The "silent chain" delivery was from this horse. Serious heavy motor suspended atop the heavy cast iron fixture.

Your great threading tag photo is a list. All the individuals in middle column and all the individuals in the right column - and maybe a few more - but certainly all the individuals from the 16 tooth to the 80 tooth listed there

Then there is COMPOUNDING but you can read about that is this terrific edition of HTRAL
