Dial Thread Indicator

Lever-operated Double Tool Slide (cut-off slide) with front and back stops.
This accessory was also available with a screw-feed action.

Coil-winding Attachment. This used the lathe screwcutting facility to wind small coils to an exact specification.

Raiser Blocks under the headstock, tailstock and top slide
- an accessory available for many South Send lathes.

Bull wheel with 60 division holes and its associated locating-plunger assembly.

Cross slide mounted 6-station turret assembly.

"Toolroom" faceplates.
A faceplate with 4 rings of dividing holes - illustrated in use on the 10-inch lathe.
Another rare version was also offered of especially solid construction (believed to be in steel) and covered with tapped holes on the face and with a degree-marked polished rim

4-way toolpost

Bed-mounted 6-station turret head. This particular model required hand indexing - another model was available with automatic indexing as the head slid backwards.

Tailstock-mounted 6 station turret.
Once a popular and frequently used accessory amongst the keener sorts of amateur and model engineers.

10 in 1 Toolholder
This fully-hardened holder was available to fit not only the 9-inch lathe but others in the range.
It came with a set of basic turning tools and a built-in, self-aligning knurl. The tool height could be set by an adjusting screw which passed down through the main body of the toolholder and pressed against the top slide.

Lever-action Collet Assembly. Available across the range of South Bend lathes this is a comparatively rare fitting on the smaller machines. The mounting details varied over the years, and according to the size of lathe, but the basic principle of operation remained the same. Of the South Bend clones makers, only Smart and Brown offered a similar accessory.

Collet Draw Bar, spindle-thread protector, spindle adapter and collet
