View Full Version : 16" and 14 1/2" Southbend lathe thrust bearing

I have a 50's era 16" Southbend. My thrust bearing has started making noise and I think it will soon need replacing. Does anyone have the dimensions of the bearing? I can probably measure the thickness and OD, but not the ID before I tear the machine down. I would like to have a replacement bearing before that. The parts list says the 14 1/2" has the same bearing. Thanks

I found a NOS bearing from a fellow on the Southbend Lathe Yahoo forum. Thanks to all those that at least looked at this post.
