    Catalog # 84-A
    SN: 41537

    11" x 4ft

    (Still trying to figure out the original drive combination but it currently has what I believe to be an overhead spindle with 3 levels)

    I'm still trying to figure out all the parts so any help would be appreciated. I posted all the pics of what I have in an album under my profile.

    cant get to the nameplate or much else past the s/n, its buried in a garage, looks like a 10ft bed, i can see 4 steps on the spindle pulley and a taper attachment, more info if i can dig it out
    i dug it out, its now in my garage, next to the older one. it is actually 8ft long with a 15 inch swing, it looks almost exactly the same as my model 37

    I received the serial card for 85320 today and to my surprise the red paint that it is wearing is the red paint it was wearing when it left South Bend on 7/20/1938 I guess I was not aware they did special paint colors. carb.jpg

    This is more than likely to be a 1918 model.

    There were several 9 inch lathes in this time frame,
    we would need to see a photo to ID it.
    the Year is 1938.

    You have found one of the "Auto Service Shop" Workshop Lathes. South Bend developed a slew of attachments for the workshop lathe for this service field. Very few of the Original Red lathes survived.
    Great find!!

    Thanks for the serial card, it confirms the "Auto Service Shop" Red Paint.
    See this special Catalog for images of your lathe:

    Just purchased and took delivery of a 1965 10K.

    S/N 8571 KARX 8

    Model CL770A

    4' Bed

    Ways and everything else are really nice, clean, and tight. It has been in the same family of machinists for light use starting around the late 60's.

    Thank you very much for the info Steve I really thought someone just painted it red I'm really glad I saved it from the scrap bin and will begin a resto on it as soon as I'm done with #72289 9" that I'm working on right now, one question for you though... what does the D. C. after the red on the file card mean?

    here are a few pics of it in it's current used and abused state.20180806_210408.jpg20180806_210545.jpg20180806_210454.jpg

    Can you tell me where to find the serial number for a South Bend 7" shaper?

    Thank you,

    Should be on the lower right side of the machine..so...if you are facing the machine from the front, the serial # should be on lower left.PB

    well I saved a 1919 13" #20228 from the scrap pile this weekend and it looks to be in fairly good shape minus the surface rust and the conglomeration they scabbed on top of it to make it run, they had already started taking it apart to scrap it out that's why the carriage is on the pallet instead of on the machine,I am assuming this one ran on the overhead belt system but, I would like to find the system that mounts on the machine itself rather than the wall or ceiling if that's possible.20180729_154459.jpg20180729_154529.jpg20228.jpg
