Hi All,

Does anyone have any REALLY old South Bend manuals or drawings that they'd like to part with, or at least make a few photo copies from??

I've got a 1919 13" SB. I'm trying to fix the carriage feed clutch mechanism and can't tell if it's original and really beat up or someone's bad hack job.

I contacted South Bend (LeBlonde) and they said that SB must have gotten rid of the manuals and drawings for machines as old as this.

Anybody got some on a shelf??

He has a lot of old manual and good copier.
Harold is a wonderful and interesting person, but he likes to talk to people so be fore warned.

I Have a set off South Bend parts lists. They are dated late 50's early 60's. Don't know if they will help, they're not drawings or blueprints. Let me know if your interested. Will make copies if you like. I've also got a 13" SB don't know the age but it has QC double tumbler gearbox.
