South Bend "9-inch" Model B Lathe


For Sale: South Bend Model B lathe 4.5" centre height by 24" between centres. Backgeared, screwcutting and with power sliding and surfacing feeds. In excellent, original condition and well equipped with: two 3-jaw chucks, 6-inch half-depth body independent 4-jaw chuck, 5-inch independent 4-jaw chuck, a genuine South Bend milling slide, fixed steady, thread-dial indicator, two 4-way toolposts, screwcutting changewheels, faceplate, catchplate, spare chuck backplate, tailstock rotating centre, tailstock chuck, a self-reversing tapping attachment, collet draw tube and spindle nose piece adapter, two larger feed-screw micrometer dials, a spare top slide, a good quantity of tooling including the height-adjustable Myford boat-type, Morse centres and Morse adapters and the proper South Bend countershaft that gives 12 spindle speeds. Single-phase motor and Dewhurst reversing switch, The Model B South Bend has the power-feed apron that, in addition to providing power cross feed, also gives a much finer rate of sliding feed and allows the leadscrew clasp nuts and leadscrew to be used only when screwcutting, so saving wear on these components.
The lathe has been dismantled into large components - but is only a 30-minute job to assemble.
