    Default Never used (brand new = perfect) 1984 vintage south bend 10k lathe




    I have a brand new, never used South Bend 10K UMD lathe (catalog number CL 370RDA) purchased in 11/1984. The original owner was a friend of my parents, and he was in his 80's when he decided it was time to start downsizing. He bought this lathe because it made him happy just to look at it. He never ever turned on the motor, because he didn't even take the time to figure out how it worked.
    Chance of a life time to own a piece of machinist history. An item like this probably will never again come up for sale. With this lathe you don't have to worry about what kind of abuse it was subjected to, or if reconditioned, was it done properly or was it done by a used care salesman.
    Serious buyers only, and to arrange inspection of the lathe, only time available is M-F 9am – 5pm. Located in North Seattle. Cash only. $11,000. Email any questions and to set up an appointment for a viewing. Shipping not included.

    It comes with the following items purchased at the same time – all listed on a receipt (also, they appear never used):
    1. CL 2680NK MILLING ATTACHMENT
    2. CL 758NK PLAIN CARRIAGE STOP
    3. CE 1625 TEFLON LUBE
    4. CL 1957NK METRIC TRANSPOSING GEARS
    5. CL 810NK THREAD DIAL INDICATOR
    6. CL 2250NK THREAD CUTTING STOP
    7. CL 1483NK MULTITAP FACE PLATE
    8. CL 968NK MICROMETER CARRIAGE STOP
    9. CE 469NK BORING BAR AND TOOL HOLDER
    10. CE 2930NK 10 IN 1 TOOL KIT
    11. CE 2107 LATHE DOGS (3/8” 1/2” 3/4” 1” 1.25” 1.5”)
    12. CE 2450NK TOOL POST ASSEMBLY

    The following items appear brand new, and appear never used but are not on the receipt dated 11/02/1984
    1. CE 1731 CABINET STYLE BENCH
    2. CE 2175NK SMALL FACE PLATE
    3. CE 2401 60 DEGREE CENTER (TWO)
    4. CE 2450NK TOOL POST ASSEMBLY (there are 2, but only one is listed on the receipt)
    5. CL 3705NK 5” 3-JAW UNIVERSAL CHUCK WITH 3 EXTRA JAWS
    6. CE2527 MORSE TAPER REDUCING SLEEVE #3 TO #2
    7. CE2302 TAPER ARBOR FOR CE 1201
    8. CE 1201 0 – 1/2” DRILL CHUCK (6T 33)
    9. CL 4906NK 6” 4-JAW CHUCK (POWER COMPANION TOOLS 1111706 MADE IN USA)
    10. CE 876 CUTTING-OFF BLADE
    11. 3AT COLLETS MADE IN GERMANY (3/16” 1/4” 5/16” 3/8” 7/16” 1/2”)

    The following item might be used but not sure:
    1. HANDWHEEL COLLET ATTACHMENT WITH COLLET CLOSER AND WORKS WITH 3AT COLLETS
    2. 3 TURNING TOOL HOLDERS (STRAIGHT, RIGHT HAND, AND LEFTHAND) LISTED AS CE 846S CE 846R CE 846L


    The photo showing all the items has 2 missing: CE 2401 60 DEGREE CENTER (TWO) and CE 1201 0 – 1/2” DRILL CHUCK (6T 33)

    How cool! Very interesting sale. Obviously targeting the collector. I am curious to see how the sale of this special lathe panes out. Good luck on this and 'good on you' for doing it justice in the ad, well presented

    Be sure to post the price when sold..I have my idea but think it poor practice to make comment on a deal I am not bidding on.
    Yes would love to have it..

    Keep dropping, your about halfway to what it will actually sell for.

    I think South Bend 10k lathe takes 6K collets not 3at collets. 3 ats are for Atlas, logan, etc lathes.

    If it is made in Korea I don't think anyone from here is going to pay museum piece prices for it. Just my opinion.

    I owned a very nice 1984 south bend 10k lathe, it didn’t come with as many accessories as this one, but I think I paid about 2,000 for it 6 or 7 years ago.

    I've been watching this over on Seattle CL. It's an interesting problem in economics, how to price this machine. Demand is high for small South Bends but a lot of that is because they're cheap. This one isn't cheap. I personally have forgotten too much SB lore to know if this machine was made overseas.

    I have a nice Nardini 14x40 with DRO. I have under $5k into it. It has to be 10 times the lathe this one is. I've owned 3 South Bends.

    Maybe if you found just the right buyer. But I don't think you've gotten down to the real price point yet. No harm in taking your time.
