Re: What year model lathe does this serial number reflect?

the s stamped at the front of the serial number were special low cost 10" lathes in the early 20's. the S stamped after the serial were
mostly all silent chain overhead drives in the base model 80, 9"...80...380...1080 with the newer headstock on floor legs.

Hi there -

I am looking at a 9" South Bend lathe that that has a 12" distance between centers. It looks like to my novice eye a cross between a 10" and a 9"  Its serial number is 47036S

Thoughts?

Thank you

-Nick
