Re: Old South Bend lathe - Help with ID?

Roger Bickers

Juniors have a more "boxy" apron..this looks like a C as it appears to only have a halfnut lever at the right side of the apron face. Google south bend A, B, and C separately to see the distinctions.

Be sure to look for the set of change gears as it has no gearbox. Should be like 13 of them. 

Look for a steady rest and a follow rest, as well as a 3&4 jaw chucks, a face plate, a dog plate and dogs. May even find a milling attachment.  

If you don't know what the stuff is, Google it.

Looks like a regular side oiler 9C, made for several decades. Get the serial number off the top side of the bed, right end.

Need help with ID. I'm thinking early 9", but could it be a "Junior". Sorry for bad pictures, a little crowded in there.
