    Asking $50 plus shipping, which would be $14 medium flat-rate box.

    I literally just logged in to post it for sale here before it goes up on ebay and up pops this thread.

    The minor diameter of the threads is 2.15". The minor diameter of a 2-3/8 x 6 thread ranges from 2.1476" to 2.1585", with the midpoint being 2.153, so it's pretty certain that it is 2-3/8 x 6 tpi.

    The backplate has a total thickness of 1-3/4" with the perimeter 0.919" thick.

    The register is 4.719" diameter and about 0.100" thick.

    The overall diameter is 6-1/8".

    There are three holes on approximately a 5-1/8" circle.

    The holes are tapped 8x1.25mm (yes, metric), but you can make your own holes if you can't use these.

    I will offer it first to the original poster, and then offer it to the general public with the provision that long-term members get priority (yes, I understand that the OP is new, but he just got his lathe).
    Should be good for a 16" Southbend of a certain vintage FYI

    This says that the 14-1/2" lathe has a 2-3/8x6 spindle:

    What source do you have? Did they come with more than one spindle/

    In case you hadn't noticed, people post South Bend-specific stuff here all the time.

    Yes. Not sure which vintage, but certainly vintage!

    Cool Lucky Lathe!

    Wow... that lathe is lucky you came along as it is in dire need of some TLC.
    I can't believe how chewed up the compound rest is. I agree a total rebuild is in order.
    Good luck!!

    PMc

    PS: Be certain to measure the small setscrews (especially in compound) with thread gauge,
    you may find some "discontinued" threads per inch being used back in the forties. I sure
    did on my '46 Model A 9".

    My source is the 14 1/2" in my shop with a 2 1/4"x6.

    Interesting that they would do two different spindles that close in size.

    The publication you linked is dated 1952.

    Here's a complete South Bend catalog from 1941. It shows 2 1/4-6. Little hard to read, but I'm guessing we'll see that thread size into atleast mid 1940's.

    VM link:
    South Bend Lathe Works - Publication Reprints - South Bend Lathes Catalog 100A | VintageMachinery.org

    The actual pdf link, its on page 22.

    Like I said, interesting that they would do two different spindles that close.

    They made wide bed 9" lathes with two different spindles, but one was like the 9A and the other was like the heavy 10.

    The spindle mount depended on the bore. The larger bore 14½ (1-13/32" bore) had the 2⅜-6 thread. The smaller bore 14½ (1-⅛" bore) had the 2¼-6 thread.
