    Default South Bend 13 Refurb .pdf Available

    Awhile ago I had a website I maintained where I chronicled a partial refurb of my SB13. Time warner stopped hosting websites and the content disappeared about a year ago. (There is a dead link to it in the stickies on this page).

    I finally converted the whole site to .pdf. Here is a link where you can download the .pdf.

    It's far from perfect, but I hope others can learn from my mistakes and that the community finds it useful.

    Refurbishing a 1954 South Bend 13" Lathe: Link to complete .pdf document.

    Please feel free to redistribute that link to anyone who might find it useful. The document isn't completely final yet - I still have some editing and additions to make.

    If this isn't a sticky, it should be. I referred to your website a few times before it was discontinued and always lamented its disappearance. It was by accident that I found your pdf and very happy to find the information once again.

    THANK YOU for the time, effort and hard work you put into compiling it!!

    What a well done document! I just jumped around, but the organization, clarity of pictures, and excellent descriptions are great. This had to be a tremendous amount of work.

    Have you ever heard of Lulu? ( Self Publishing - Lulu.com ) It allows you to publish copies of .pdf files in book form if you can meet the copyright terms. They have a wide number of formats. I tossed a hardbound black and white 187 page book into their pricing engine, and they returned a "manufacturing cost" of $16.26. Probably even more interesting is the coil bound version for $9.61, as this would lay flat as you did your work.

    For sheer beauty, a color hardcover goes for $46.24.

    I have never published anything this way (although I've been tempted to do a pre-1926 book just for grins), so I don't know how onerous the procedure may be. You are the only one who can do it, as you hold the copyright. I also don't know how the sales work. I assume you set a price and reap the difference between the sales and manufacturing costs.

    Thank you for the kind words. For now I'll leave it as the .pdf.

    I just uploaded the latest version, which has just a few corrections and changes from the old. The link still works and will allow you to download the most recent document, dated 11/21/17.
