    Good score.

    From what I have seen it either is new, or very, very little used.

    Honestly I'm still not sure, I haven't had enough time to look at it since it landed in the shop. Both the lathe and the DRO look to hail from about 1985ish, so I'm thinking maybe bad caps. I'll know more when I get a chance to open it up.

    Little bit of an update, still looking for a manual for it, but it appears to have been made by the Spanish company Pinacho which later merged with Metosa- Now I just need to track them down.

Going through the manual listings on the Acu-rite website, it looks like they were revising the design every couple months back then.
    Mine is membrane covered as well

    Yep, all the later model Turnados were Taiwanese too. That was one reason I bought it, it has a lot in common with current production machines from the same mfg. If I remember right, most everything SB had to offer from the mid 70's on was made elsewhere for the most part, at a minimum the castings and in this case the whole machine.

    The one SB I would like to find more info on is the 1307 toolroom machine. Always wondered if it was domestic in origin or import?

    That looks identical to but smaller than a Clausing-Metosa lathe I had in the school shop, but I think was made in Spain instead of Taiwan.

    There about,there were a few other machines in the deal not mentioned that went to somebody else. The lathe was the bulk of the transaction.

    Yes, I found the door switch and taped it closed, no joy though. I haven't got down and looked at the brake treadle to locate that switch yet, it was miserable hot out in that building today. I may look through a few Grizzly SB lathe manuals and see if any are similar to this one. It has a FWD/REV contractor set for the main motor, one for the coolant pump and a fourth one I haven't figured out yet. It might be a neutral interlock.

    The bigger bore will be nice for sure.This lathe also does 27 and 11-1/2 tpi as standard on the thread chart, which oddly enough isn't included in the standard pitches most of the lathes I have ran have.

    Thanks, I put power to it today, took me about 10 minutes of head scratching before I figured out how to switch it on. I was looking for a clutch handle, there isn't one, no push buttons either, then I noticed the pictograph next to the triangular box under the thread dial. Fwd-Neutral-Reverse switch right there. It's got an open in the safety interlock loop somewhere, because that switch is dead. I did manually close the relays on the main motor and so did get to hear it run, very quiet below 600 rpm and only some faint gear noise all the way up to 1800.
