    Default Unit Numbers For Collet Closer Or Drawbar 13"

    Dear Machinists,
    I'm looking for a south bend brand 5c collet closer or a collet draw bar for a 13" south bend lathe, manufactured in the early 70's. Does anyone know the unit numbers for the whole assemblies? Thanks in advance,

    Bob

    View this reply as more of a bump than a definitive answer.

    I think if threaded spindle it is HWC102T

    hopefully with this at the top you you get a better reply.

    I don't know if this helps, but I have this from a 1951 accessories catalog. This is essentially the one I have on my 1966 CL145:

    Default Unit Numbers VS Catalog Numbers For Drawbar 13" HWC102T

    I think the unit number is different from the catalog number. Many times, there is a unit number stamped on the draw bar which identifies it as a specific assembly for a particular lathe. I could make a draw bar but I'd really like an original SB unit for my lathe. Basically, the lathe is in excellent condition with excellent additions like a taper attachment, collet rack etc, all original SB stuff. I'd like to continue in that tradition if possible. Thanks for any help you can provide. I just need to be sure when a collet closer or draw bar comes up for sale that I'm getting the correct thing.

    Check with Ted, he will know and might even have one....you will have to confirm what type spindle you have.

    I have one, it's not in the greatest of shape but it works and I have all of the pieces for it except the original mounting bar, mine is shop made. Also have the spindle sleeve and the thread nut. If you're interested shoot me a message.
