    Default south bend 500

    Hello all. Looking for any information on a SouthBend SBL 500g lathe. It has a 1982 manufacture date. Good condition with some tooling. What is it and what value? I'm aware it is a gear head lathe but i'm unable to even find a mention of it on a google search. Seller is asking $4000.

    Did you buy this lathe? How was it? did you find anything else about 500g lathes?

    My guess is that South Bend imported this model briefly, then discontinued it. Perhaps with pictures someone will know the manufacturer(?):
