Free to a good home(s); Southbend parts
I have a few odds and ends from what I believe was a 9" SB lathe that was cannibalized to build a specialized machine. I have no need for these, so if anyone can use them, they are available for cost of shipping from 01826. Any and all will fit in flat-rate packages.
These do not have to go as a group, if you just need one part, please ask and it's yours.
1) A tailstock quill, clearly well used but functional
2)A tailstock base casting, you can see the casting number in one of the photos
3)A gear that I believe is the one that mounts on the spindle and drives the threading geartrain.
4) There are also a couple of small brass keys that were part of the headstock bearing assembly, that are visible in the photo of the gear.
Some photos here:
If you can use any of these parts, please let me know. Please do not ask for them if you plan to resell them, I can list them on ebay myself if I wanted to do that. I am hoping these can be of use to someone rebuilding a machine or two.
Thanks for looking.
I'd like them. I'll PM you.
PM me your info and they are yours.
For what it is worth, those look to be heavy 10 parts.
I doubt any of them will fit a 9" lathe.
You could be right, I never saw the original machine. Any tell-tale markers to go by?
I do not own a SB lathe, so was just going by the recollections of someone else.
My 9" South Bend does not have a removeable gear on the spindle, it is an integral part of the spindle.
I could use the brass keys if they are not spoken for.
