Since this piece has now been identified, is there anyone who who needs/wants it? I'll ship it to the first person who will send me the shipping costs. PM me.

I'm rebuilding a South Bend lathe which consisted of many boxes of parts. I've gotten to the end and have some parts left over. I'm positive they are not for the SB lathe.

One part in question is a graduated collar which has graduations up to 200 and all of the dimensions are nice even metric numbers. It is pictured below:

Does any one recognize this collar? What machine would it go to? Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

That is the same numbering as a Bridgeport on the X and Y axis leadscrews. They are 5 TPI so one turn of the crank moves the table .200. It could be for anything with a 5 TPI leadscrew or something else entirely.

It looks like the collar to a horizontal hand mill.
