    Default South Bend Heavy 10 Metric Lathe

    Hey guys,

    used machine dealer stripped a heavy 10 metric lathe to part out.. i grabbed the gear box, banjo, transposing gears, lead screw, carriage with large dial, compound with large dial and a 4 position thread dial...

    can still probably get the apron.. not sure if anything in there is metric or different from a standard apron.. should i grab it ?

    contemplating taking one of my heavy 10's and converting it, ( that would justifying me keeping 2 heavy 10 lathes )

    thoughts ?

    thanks,

    Joe

    Did you get the half nuts?I'd imagine they are the only thing different from a standard machine in the apron.

    I have an imperial/metric 10L, both use the same leadscrew.
    Neat idea regarding the half nuts, but I realize they are likely the same.

    A truly metric machine will likely have a 3mm pitch leadscrew.

    well, the guy is out till monday so ill have to wait.. measured the leadscrew this morning and its for a 4.5 ft lathe.. where i have 2 3.5 lathes so i know he will sell me the apron but now i just have more parts... i picked this up in passing so i really didnt look at the bedways... i may just try to buy all the rest of the pcs...

    yes the dials are metric and i believe the tailstock is as well...

    is the metric heavy 10 worth any more than the imperial version ? maybe i shouldnt even buy the rest of the pcs...


    thnks

    I ran across one of those in a box of stuff that came with a heavy 10 once. I knew I’d never use it so I popped it on eBay for $500 and it sold very quickly.
