    Talking

    I've been working in a machine shop for just about a year. Although its a temperary position, as I'm a Marine Engineer in the military by trade, I've had some training and topped my course, and fell in love with turning. A buddy of mine has a South Bend in his basement, and conviced me to get one if I could find one... well I did. I bought it sight unseen (scary!) I didn't know the condition of the machine at all, no serial number, or even the condition of the ways. I'm pretty happy with it, especially for buying sight unseen:



    It's been a long time coming, but its finally complete! It runs!! I still have some tweaking to do with it (I.E. electrical clean up), but its leveled and ready to make chips!! One of my first priorities will be a QCTP....



    Here are some more details...

    Catalog Number: CL370RD
    Serial Number: 40810K
    4 1/2' bed with flame-hardened ways
    Came from the Prince George School Board #15195
    Date scribed on machine: 09-08-84

    I also have a Rong-Fu RF31 milling machine that I am rebuilding.

    Thanx for inspiration here guys!!

    Cheers!

    This is a South Bend 10" model 1910, serial no. 1061, 54" bed, that I just received as a gift from my brother-in-law. He (an old Missouri farmer) bought this lathe at an auction from the grandson of (I believe) the original owner. He used it up until a year or so ago when he found a better one at another farm auction. Then he gave it to me because he knew I wanted one. It came with a 3-jaw chuck, 2 4 jaw chucks, the counter shaft, motor, and a bunch of tooling.

    I plan to just clean up the 99 years of dirt and gunk and use the thing to learn lathes and operations. I don't plan to refinish or "refurbish" any of it. I don't wanna destroy any value of the thing that others may want to restore. I plan to start a "clean-up" thread on this thing and solicit help and advice from the unbelievably knowledgeable folks on this forum.

    Anyway, here's the pics as I got it. Don't pay attention to the horribly messy shop, as my son and I are in the midst of a coupla rock crawler builds and it's a mess.

    Default my SB lathe

    Here is a picture of my SB lathe I just picked up last night. I probably paid too much but needed a lathe and this one was in very good condition.


    It's a 9" with a 3' bed and the catalog number is 415-YA. No time to restore it yet as it has to go to work right away replacing my old Atlas.

    Default 1936 11" x 24"

    Finally getting around to posting the nearly finished restoration (99.9% complete, just need to add the carriage lock) of my odd ball 1936 11" x 24" - a 1.5 year labor of love. It gets used quite a bit tinkering around and making all sorts of things. I have to say each use adds to the amazing feeling of being able to use / care for a piece of American manufacturing history. The gear whine (although without the pto it's amazingly quiet and smooth), changing the belt, adding all the oil manually, trying to keep it clean all add to the feeling.

    Default Here's one you don't see often

    Found this lathe while looking for a lathe to make large accurate wood tooling for spinning. It's a model 302 silent chain drive Southbend lathe missing the headstock tool tray with the name on it, approximately 1928. It's got 36" swing which looks more like 39 1/2" with 27" bed travel, risers are factory. Weighs about 2600 lbs and is less than 7' long. Cleaned up and works great, mostly original but has a 2HP 3Ph motor instead of the factory 1HP. Fun to operate but moved on to a Leblond Sliding gap lathe 10HP for turning large heavy material. Not sure if I will part with it or not.

    Here is a photo of my 1965 heavy 10 after repainting. I have a copy of the build sheet and it was special ordered with a hardened bed and 3/4 HP 115 Volt motor. Built in Oct 1965.

    Here is the lathe I just bought. It is 10L. Thank you for this forum, lot of information here to restore the lathe some day.

    OK....after months of lusting after the machines I've seen here I finally bought one. '78 model 10K. Paid $800....hope I didn't get $crewed. Seems to have very little (if any) wear. Didn't get a lot of tooling with it. Just a taper attach, steady rest, lantern post, several dead centers, rusty cutting tools, small single slot faceplate and a 4-jaw. Just ordered up a bunch of stuff...3-jaw and back plate, QCTP, indexable cutting tool (lot of 7)...all cheap chi-com but sometimes that stuff works.

    I really had my heart set on rebuilding a heavy 10 or a 13. You know...cast iron legs and stuff...but this came up and I bit. But this one really doesn't need any work...it's good to go. I may repaint it if I get really bored but even the paint is pretty fair. Only bad spots are on pieces that could be repainted separately w/o a complete teardown.

    The bench is pretty crummy. Looks to be lumber frame w/ two really heavy solid core doors bonded (?) together for a top. These look like office doors...really solid. Has a top shelf that, while useful for holding lots of stuff, covers the motor/pulley assembly such that you can't change the motor belt easily. I'll use it as is for now but I want to build something "pretty" like the stuff some of you guys have.

    The overall layout is a little quirky. The motor/pulley + lathe is sort of
    "L" shaped so the area in back of the lathe is large but pretty unusable. Any ideas on what to do with space (about 3ft x 1.5 ft).

    Why did they need so much space between the lathe and the motor? Seems like the motor could move toward the lathe about 4 to 6 inches and still work fine. Has anyone tried to "shorten" one of these? Convert to under-drive? Convert to overhead drive (Yikes)?

    I did take it out for a test drive. Turned down a piece of 1/2" CR and knurled the end...it's works!
