decoding a South Bend manufacturing card

j eric townsend


FINALLY getting around to doing this several years after getting a copy of my lathe's manufacturing card.

If I understand things, "RKL" means:

R -- Heavy
K -- Gearbox
L -- Spindle type? Is this the 5C for a heavy?

I thought there would be a FAQ on this online, but maybe it's just not my night for searching the Internet.
