    Since you are a new user it will take some time for your pictures to show up. Just give it a day or two and they will be visible.

    In the mean time you could have the seller count the gear teeth on the gear train. That would give a good clue. Maybe even the TPI of the leadscrew. This info is usually on the gear box tag, assuming it has a gearbox, and assuming it has a tag.

    Looks like a 14 1/2. I have one of those. They are sort of a bastard size.

    Those extra gears and banjo look promising! You may have everything needed to do both inch and metric threads.

    Yes they are very stout machines. I'd slaughter a small village to get those transposing gears for metric threading on my lathe...

    What is the length? It's over 1000 lbs regardless.

    Living in Portugal I don't know what machinery you have available to you. That might drive up the price. I knew a few people who lived in Portugal and loved it. You people are crazy drivers though! Take 1,000 but offer 800 euro and some good sardines and see what they say.

    From your last pics, you can see that (16" South Bend) is cast into the front of the bed. Since the gearbox thread
    chart starts with 4 threads per inch, that would make it an S series lathe. A 16" S series lathe would be a model
    CL-117. If the bed is 6 feet long it would be a 117C. If the bed is 7 feet long it would be a 117D, 8 foot a 117E.
    Got it? Hope this helps. Good Luck. PB p.s. looks like it might be in good shape.

    Oh look at that. It is a 16". Those are easier to find parts for than the 14 1/2 I have.

    That machine will make you wonder how you ever got along using the smaller lathe. The first time you make chips and look at the finish you will be amazed.

    Crated weight on a later model of the same size lathe was about 1080 kilos. Not crated will be a little less.

    I have one of those, it was redone by South Bend in 1975. They added a taper attachment and a 2 speed electric motor. It runs like a sewing machine. Will take some pretty healthy cuts, if you get too aggressive it slips the flat belt. It holds accuracy, and repeats very well. I paid 1200 American for it with no tooling and had to clean it up and replace the cross feed screw and nut. I have been really happy with it. It paid for itself in time savings the first job I've done with it. Tim
