I can't speak to your lathe, but neither of mine have ACME threads on the spindle nose. They are 60 degree V threads. I've seen people use Atlas accessories on a South Bend, and vice versa on the 1-1/2"-8TPI threads, too. Might want to look again real close. With a thread gauge in hand. Or someone may have ordered it with an ACME thread, or modified a spindle. Stranger things have happened.
