    Steve, no “T” at the end. I’ll try to get some pics. I was told pre-ww2, but no idea.

    I have 117083. 13" 5 foot bed, catalog number 8113B(?) this lathe does not have its original head stock, it's been replaced with a newer one that has 5C collet support and adjustable bearings. 1941 manufacture? Also has taper attachment. img_20190719_091421-02.jpgimg_20190718_173302-01.jpg

    my first post is pending, goes into more detail.

    Yes, this would be a 1941 Toolroom 13R converted to a 13L.
    The bronze bearings in the later model headstock are adjusted by shimming. Care should be taken when doing this, the proper sequence of removing the bearing sleeve expander screws before removing the cap bolts to shim needs to be followed to avoid damaging the dovetails on the bearings and expander. If you would like any factory documentation, just let me know, I'll post links for you.


    Thanks,
    Steve

    It looks like 1945.
    On the link you have to keep going down the page to find serial numbers above and below yours. Serial number format changed several times over the years.

    This is a new acquisition, model CL-199-A serial number 10798RKR15. It's a 10R that someone suggested was built in 1958. Would love any more info anyone has about this model.

    Default Ser. Number 10407TKX14

    About to take possession of 13" Tool room model that was sold by Star Machinery out of their Portland, Oregon branch.
    Details:
    Serial Number - 10407TKX14
    Catalog Number - CLC8175 C (Puzzling as I can’t find anything referring to CLC code, just CL)
    Bed Length: 6'
    Extras - Handwheel collet attachment and rack, handlever collet attachment, large faceplate, telescoping jaw steady rest, telescoping jaw follower rest,handlever bed turret (can see in background of main photo), handlever turret (tailstock style), square turret, taper attachment, thread indicator, and an unused full set of metric transposing gears.

    Have ordered a Serial Card form Grizzly. Still waiting on it...

    If anyone can enlighten me as to what the last C in "CLC" designates, I would greatly appreciate it. Hours of internet searching has possibly pointed toward it indicating that a instead of a factory threaded nose, it shipped as a cam lock.

    The back story to this machine is that is was sold by Star Machinery to Mr. Jim Gibbs of Hensley & Gibbs Bullet Molds in the late 60's (date unconfirmed). My father had become very good friends with Jim quite a few years after Jim had retired and sold the H&G business to his son Wayne. As years went by, Jim decided to start selling some of his machines he had kept, and at some point, he graciously offered this South Bend and a Bridgeport mill to my Dad (as he had started a small machining business). Pop ran a lot of jobs on this beauty and that work got him and my mom to Hawaii every year for a couple weeks for many a year...
    To make along story short(er), Pop has gotten on in years and has not touched or run the SB for many years. It's pretty dirty but is in great mechanical shape and run like a dream. Needs a little cleaning and some paint here and there, but with it's history I may just leave well enough alone...

    Thanks for looking and if anyone knows any other info please post it as I am going to put it in file to stay with the machine.

    Pics!

    Found this one local to me. Looks nice..no tooling unfortunately. Seems like 1947 if I’m reading the SN Database right?

    cool! Older than I thought...has really small dials, compound has hex bushing, cross is plain round bushing with the short CS extension...has a round knurled knob on clutch, but that may not be original? ...4tpi gearbox.

    Anything you want to see let me know! Seller was a great guy, once he found out I was not a scrapper or reseller we made a good deal.
