The 1906 is the norton gearbox patent date. SB did not start using
that style of gearbox until 1923 or so.

> I'm not interested (I can't imagine where I'd put this beast), but this looks to me like a really good price for a 18" x 120" (10'!) SB lathe.  One of the pictures shows a 1906 date, which I find hard to believe (since that's the first year South Bend was in business). It's a model 71-G.  It's dirty, but I don't see any rust in the pictures, and it looks like all of the parts are there, and that it's in pretty good shape under the dirt.  Only $900!
