    Found the motor tag. Sorry if its difficult to read. I need to try and clean it up for better visibility.

    Well, look at that, single phase IR motor. It does seem to have a switch diagram on it. You'd need a 20 amp circuit if you use 110v. I think higher voltage makes more sense for this application.

    Thanks Allan.

    I am thinking 220 will be the most efficient for the machine. Glad its not 3 phase !!



    Thank you for all the help from the group!

    Glad to help. If you need advice on the wiring diagram, post a picture of the guts of the switch, and any labels inside the switch cover.

    I will take any help and advice from you guys. I purchased the two books .. how to run a lathe, and The guide to renovating the SB lathe. I have a steep learning curve and want to do this correctly.

    That photo is O.K it show all you need to know. I would run it on 220 VAC {higher voltage lower amps.}

    Just a small update. Electrician should have it completely wired and ready to go within a week. So during that time I am starting to pull apart the sections I can get to and clean them up.
    My question to the guru's. Any advice into properly cleaning it for a clean amooth efficient operation. The casting portion will be cleaned and painted.

    20170228_162219.jpg

    Any idea how I can clean these up to show the increments? Or am I outof luck?
    20170228_162244.jpg

    Any tricks to removing the end screw ?
    20170228_163853.jpg

    I noticed on the spacer block I am missing the part that locks the spacer to the lathe. Is this a part that I can find and purchase here? Or am I out of luck.

    Little update.
    Electrician got the wiring figured out and cleaned up. We agreed it was easiest to stay 110. Wired it up and motor ran effortlessly.

    I now need to move it to its permanent location in the shop and figured it wouldn't hurt to lose some weight when doing so. I have to lift it off the pallet its bolted to. While removing piece by piece, I started a mini restoration. Using the Book as reference, I have been careful with removal of parts. I even purchased the rebuild kit and lubricant oils.
    I am open to suggestions on how to safely move this. My thought is to carefully lift the lathe and remove the pallet. Then lower onto my car dollys (rated at 6K lbs) and move to area. Then lift one side at a time and carefully lower into place.
    My only concern is the front "adjustable" leg that was designed for naval uses.

    Here's some progress pictures.

    Thanks to Ted, aka SBLatheman for hooking me up with nicer parts than what I had.

    I was looking for something just a bit ago, and stumbled across this:

    1x48 South Bend Lathe

    Amazing what turns up..

    EBW, I think you have an interesting machine. I am sure you will love it.

    Best regards,

    Marc

    Bringing this thread back. I ended up finishing this project. Life, Family, Work all seem to make these projects last longer than you first imagine.

    Some updated photos.

    I am looking for a 4 Jaw chuck and Tool Post Holders. Does anyone have a company they like, or don't like. I am open for suggestions.

    Just curious, but what is the purpose of the "swivel leg"? I've never seen that option before.

    From the information I have gathered, this Lathe was built for the war effort and this one was specific to Naval recommendations. I assume it was to allow for the ships as they shifted.

    I am looking for a 10" or roughly same diameter as the 3 chuck. I am going to "attempt" to restore the 3 chuck.

    As far as Tool post, I am looking for the quick change style like everyone seems to use nowadays. I have looked at MSC and what they have to offer. Not sure this where folks purchase from. They have a few options with different companies ( and the prices are across the board )
    I am looking for something that will hold up for my occasional Hobby type use of this Lathe.


    This is the current setup.

    Not hardly. Even your TAG says that it was a corp of engineers procurement. Anyway, a lathe on a ship would have been bolted to the deck - no way would it have been allowed to "shift" as the ship plowed through the waves.

    I am not an expert, just going off what others have told me. Read down to the bottom of page 1 on this thread. They even stated these legs were for Navy.

    13" South Bend Lathe....here we go again...

    I would have to agree with EBW on the purpose. He wasn't stating it wasn't going to be bolted down. The HS clearly would, and the pivoting foot clearly could be bolted as well. The pivot would prevent the shifting of the ships deck between the HS and TS ends from effecting alignment/twist of the lathe bed. This feature really would be useful on any floor actually as most floors aren't perfect. My unmentionable lathe on even more unmentionable sheet metals stands will be getting a foundation upgrade at some point and that makes perfect sense for the TS end, with something wicked beefy at the HS end. Many lathes incorporate similar features to aid in alignment, or isolate the floor from impacting alignment.
