    I would not do any of that- once you get a milling machine, turn the spare headstock and spindle into an indexer. You'll be able to swap chucks from the lathe to the milling machine, which is handy....

    MechGen, are you actually located in north Africa? I might have a headstock casting around here somewhere...

    Make sure you get the countershaft and the change gears, which I did not see in the photos.

    Yeah, top oiler but with a reverse tumbler. Circa 1935 or 36 South Bend 9" workshop model C.

    No, they are regular right hand threads. Make sure you remove any oil hole screws before you try to turn them, however.

    With the diameter and tooth count, we can calculate pitch: (92+2)/5.25 =~ 18 DP. So, these are from one of a couple 9" SB lathes probably. The 5/8 bore is confusing to me, however. 9" workshop...

    We'd need the tooth pitch, or at least the diameter and tooth count from your largest gear. the 5/8 bore but narrow face width is unusual. Do the larger gears have round lightening holes in them?

    That is not where SB normally stamped serial numbers. Can you look at the right end of the bed, top front, by the leadscrew hanger screw heads? Any chance there is something there?

    No problem. The lathe just screams 'intra-war german', but the clincher for me is that thing on the front of the apron. As soon as I saw that, I knew it was a Fischer. They usually cast their name in...

    Not Polish, German. This is a Fischer KBSnf lathe. A google search for fischer drehbank should show some similar units. Someone has cut the white lead dauber hole off the tailstock. Otherwise, looks...

    Do not swap any parts, you will just screw something up. Swapping the spindle cone pulley for a generic pulley will prevent your back gear from working, for instance.

    Given the small diameter of...

    It rides on top of the worm wheel, and drags oil up from the apron reservoir. Don't leave it out.

    Uhh, 3:1 would yield the same size motor pulley regardless of the motor speed :)

    Anyway, as I said before, you'd need to use a Poly-v belt (something like J section) in order to use that small of...

    The mass has little to do with it. The countershaft exists to drop the speed to something appropriate for the spindle, and give the operator some speed choices. But, your low speed motor and VFD give...

    Once you get another chuck or faceplate that fits your new spindle, use it to hold your old chucks and modify them to accept backplates.

    Just another similar year 11" probably. Later machines have a larger diameter spindle, even if the gear portion is the same. If you just have a few missing teeth, consider repairing them.

    We can probably make 100/127 work just as well as 90/127, so don't buy anything else until you tell us what the old end gearing and gearbox options are :)
