Re: Our 1915 South Bend Lathe Series O, 15-inch [1 Attachment]

Nice old lathe. Here's how dad and I mounted a drive setup on a similar age Sears Expert (made by South Bend) of similar age. The main bit was putting 1/4" steel plates between the legs and bed, with the one at the headstock end extended out the rear to hang it all on. We also gave it a foot pedal to tilt the drive forward for super easy belt speed changes.
