    I am new to the forum and recently bought a South Bend lathe and am having trouble identifying the year(I think it is a 1928). It is a 11 swing 5' bed b-33. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am also in need of a bull gear. any place I can get one would also be a big help. Thanks in advance

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

    Thanks. Oh I had registered my serial number on the other vintage site and they said it was a 1954.

    Thanks for posting your 33-B ksillustrator. I never noticed the tray like that on a Southbend before.southbend-tray.jpg

    I think when it was updates to v-best they moved things. Still trying to figure out all the things that were done. A puzzle fo sure

    I know that the odds are against me, but I will ask anyway, Do you have a bull gear?

    Here is the back story of my old lathe. I copied and pasted from the serial number section.

    catalog 27-B s/n 27,254 11" swing, 5' bed
    date cast in bed 3-21-21

    I got this lathe in 1998. When I worked at a electric motor repair shop. One day my machinist (I was the shop production supervisor) asked if he could get rid of the old lathe he used for a shelf. I didn't even know it was there it was behind a big old monarch lathe we used for metallizing. I gave the plant manager $100, loaded it on a trailer and took it home. Pulled into my father-in-laws driveway to show him my new toy. he just shook is head and asked what I was going to do with it. Mind you I never even turned a lathe on!
    The lathes new home would be in my basement. Most of you know the game.
    Remove headstock, tailstock, legs, apron and motor. Leaving just the bed.
    My father-in-law said it would never run again.(fooled him I've moved it twice now). I was able to carry everything into the basement by myself except for the bed. based on the old catalogs listed on line (thank you Steve and others)
    I figure the bed weighs 250#. More than this 150# man can carry down wooden steps in a 100+ year old house. With help got that done.
    I'll post some pictures later of some small things I've done with it. some day I need to take a class or find a mentor to work with. So I can put it to better use.

    I bought the lathe in wichita, ks and all the v-belt changes on the pulleys are from a Wichita business (Braley) which I can find no info on. Wichita is a Boeing, Cessna, Spirit aviation town So I think it may have come from one of them so they may have created the tray.

    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.

    I'll post back after it shows up.

    Okay, here are a few pics of the compound screw/nut. (My pics probably don't do it justice.)









    Fit and finish looks great.

    FYI: I did notice that he's offering a cross feed screw/nut as well.

    One of the nicer 11" SBs that I've seen. Makes me jealous.

    hi guys,

    I have been working on a 1922 27-B 11" lathe with a 5' bed with silent overhead chain drive. i currently have all painted surfaces of the lathe media blasted and completely free of paint, will be spraying everything hopefully this coming week. i am missing a part for the silent chain drive unit. it is the sprocket that goes onto the motor shaft. in some of the parts catalogs it is called a motor drive chain pinion. If someone here has this same drive unit, i would really appreciate it if you could tell me the number of teeth and diameter of the sprocket and if there is a part number on the piece.

    thanks,
    stay safe!

    Ross

    Hello everyone! First post and very green machinist here. I have been on the hunt for a lathe to expand my knowledge on and do projects with. I just bought a Atlas 12in for $200, but he modified it for wood working. Now that I have it home and have dug into it, I don't think it is economical to return to working metal order.

    Anyway, I'm on the hunt again, and found a South Bend 63-B 11in lathe near me. But I have no idea of the value! He says it runs but I see gears missing from the drivetrain and no handles on the gearbox... what might you think this is worth? Seems kind of high to me. Thanks for your input.


    Southbend lathe (metal lathe) 11” x5’ later over head drive - tools...

    Also, is there a post describing how to add pictures to a post? I searched but couldn't find.
