This lathe belongs to a friend. He would be interested to know a little about it.

Has a strong resemblance to a South Bend 9c, especially the carriage.

George - when I saw the topic, I thought your lathe was having mood swings http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//wink.gif

Never heard of that company but it sure does look like a South Bend clone. I wonder if it was manufactured under licence from S.B.?

I'll betcha it is a lot more lathe than some of the imported stuff!

I would ask the manufacturer. They are still in business.

Is that long gray thing in the chip tray under the carriage one of those special adjustable wrenches used on lathes in Canada?

Man, that Moody website is aggravating! The links / drop down menus at the top MOVE from right to left, making it a pain in the butt to click on the one you want.
A nice feature to avoid if you're designing your own website.

Your right about that. I tried a search on Matthew Moody and Sons but didn't come up with much. The info that I did find is about there wood working machines.

When I was at the machine show last year in Toronto, there was a machine that looked exactly like my SB9, except it was painted an off white and had chrome everything else. Well I couldn't just walk by without asking about it, and the fellow there said it was made in Quebec.
