    Just a "heads up", searching around on ebay I found someone offering a newly made "compound screw & nut for SB 11" lathe". They looked well made and mine is a bit "loose" so I put a set on order.

    You are correct, that serial number would mean that it is an "O" series made in 1928 South Bend Lathe Serial Numbers

    Oddly enough there is some information on Wikipedia if you drill down in to some of the detailed descriptions.

    Okay then. :D

    If you have a lathe you can get a "kit" to make a draw bar. Basically all you have to do is to cut the bar to length and insert it into the drive head(?) and pin it, done! I...

    I'll second what eKretz said. It's really a pretty simple design and there is not a whole lot to impede the quills movement so make sure the quill lock is off and put the spindle feed in neutral.

    I have an older Wells-Index 860 mill that is roughly set up like a Bridgeport, 4 nuts that hold the head on and a worm gear to angle it side to side. It's a bit worn and the worm gear has some slop...

    If you can get away with a two piece I'd just drill an 8mm hole in the 11mm stock and insert the 8mm bar in to it. You can do a heat/cool fit, Loctite retaining fluid, pin it, etc. No messing...

    Odd SB on local CL

    I believe this is an old SB anyway. It's history is probably pretty questionable considering some of the odd things I see on it.
