Original 1934 9-inch Model 5   South Bend Home Page   Accessories   

Unknown until 2014, this South Bend copy - the only one so far discovered - was advertised in France during 2014. With numerous differences including the tailstock casting, cross-feed micrometer dial, the shape of the leadscrew clap nut handle, position of the locking screws to position the top-slide swivel, leadscrew hanger brackets bolted on horizontally instead of vertically and a quite different yet obviously modelled-on-the-original countershaft - this is obviously a close copy and not an original.
