    Man that's as minty as they get. Makes me want to get inside of mine with a toothbrush. Well,, maybe not.
    I'm sure he'll get his asking price. Seeing the likes, I bet Dal is going to pop for it. Go for it girl!

    No rust now or ever?
    The serial number is in the 1961 range. The spindle and flame hardened ways would have been special order.
    Hard to believe that the ways and cross slide haven’t been reground.
    Owned by a little old lady. Parked in a garage and only used on the weekend for 60 years?
    Would be interested to know the history on the lathe.

    Seeing more pics that Kevin posted, looks like L-0 or L-00 spindle threads. Adapter on original, or specialty spindle I wonder.

    That lathe is absolutely worth the money being asked and he will sell it at that price. It is however, incorrect to compare that machine to a 10ee. They are different machines and appeal to different folks. I would not own a 10ee for one with that mickey mouse drive, but that's just me. I on the other hand, would find that SB 13 very useful because of its condition and it is fully tooled. So, if you divide his cost by two, you have the real cost of the lathe. Secondly, yes the machine is slow, but that's not a serious issue. In my experience speeds above 500 rpm are rarely used for machining. The higher speeds are used for polishing mostly. A more serious concern on the negative side is the lack of metric transposing gears. I think the machine is assessed at the correct value for a hobby machine. It is a machine design from 1925 and if I was going to spend that kind of money, I would be looking for a newer design.

    The seller (Santal8) has updated the listing with more detail and history. Interesting indeed...

    Interesting lathe.
    I don’t see a steady rest or a follower.
    You would definitely need the steady rest for gunsmithing.
    The turret is a hard to find item. They don’t come up often on auction.

    I thought he was a welder because of the brackets that are attached.

    I use mine for gunsmithing and hobby work. It works great for my needs.

    He teaches both machine fundamentals and fundamentals of metal processing (fabrication, casting, welding, etc.) in his "day job". His eBay posting alludes to the fact that he's getting more into welding and fabrication, and with limited space in his shop, he's making room to do more of that. He has excellent skills in both spaces....

    In one of the pictures you can see another pretty lathe in the background!


    ...and it's sold! (To some lucky SOB)

    added for history

    ..."Please email me if you have an interest about the background of this machine. There is not one spec. of rust anywhere on this plus the drip tray under the gear box is custom. The rags on the chip pan are for protection. There is a 1/4 " thick steel plate bolted through the pan top and bottom that is structural for the tooling leg on the tail stock end. Bed has NOT been reground. Price an import of similar size and find out what you pay and what you get and take a guess at how long will it last and resale value.

    Ask Questions Please !


    Price reflects perfect condition and loads of tooling! See all pictures and ask questions please. 2Hp, 3 phase, magnetic starter, taper attachment new old stock German Rohm 3 jaw chuck, like new 4 jaw chuck, Jacobs collet chuck, face plates Aloris quick change tool post, and much more!

    GUARANTEED FACTORY NEW SPECS.ON BACKLASH, BED WEAR, AND ALIGNMENT!


    The machine was in the inspection department of the South Bend Lathe factory. It was used for inspecting lathe spindles. Since it was NEVER a production machine, it had to be fitted out and finished with the following: N.O.S. compound rest, N.O.S. apron parts for power feed including half nuts, N.O.S. tail stock quill, N.O.S. cross feed screw and others. The bed does carry a 1961 serial number. I finished this out with new paint, new parts, and quality tooling.

    Why then am I selling? I have 4 South Bend Lathes. I am shifting to a welding and fabrication manufacturing environment and down sizing my collection of "museum quality" machine tools. I have already sold 1 of my 3 milling machines, 2 of my 4 drill presses, 2 of my 4 band saws, a dust collector, a like new surface grinder and more.


    Free loading, can be seen under power, will ship from zip 47809. Bolted to a skid and shrink wrapped. Estimated shipping size is 44" wide x 72" long x 48" tall and at least 2,200 lbs. with all the tooling."...
