Hi, Keith, and welcome!
 
I have a younger brother of your lathe. Mine is a 1948 9A. It, too, has “South Bend” on two of the cross webs on its 4 1/2 foot bed.
 
Mine has a shallower wick well in the chuck side of the headstock, making it pretty much impossible to get the spring and felt plug into it. I had to shorten mine, and I’m uncomfortable with that.
 
I am very interested to know if yours is the same! The other well is deeper and the felt/spring piece from the refurbish kit fit just fine.

Hi from Oz

Kjman55
 

just a quick post to say hello as I just joined your group . I just got a 1947 9" A model which I had to strip down to its major components to transport it.  I already have a Hercus 9" C model ( a clone of the South Bend) and the quick change gearbox will be a nice upgrade. I have just removed the paint and am planning to repaint it this weekend prior to reassembly. One thing that I find interesting is that while the Hercis has some slight improvements ( better spindle lubrication and a more space efficient overhead countershaft/ drive setup) the quality of the castings on the South Bend seems better. When I restored the Hercus some time ago, it had loads of filler to even up rough part lines in the castings, hollows and other cosmetic blemishes. I was surprised to find the South Bend had no filler and didn't need any! 
Unfortunately my spindle bearings in the south Bend are deeply grooved, especially the front bearing. The capillary oiler wick was just a piece of rag someone had shoved in there!! I will get it going and see how it runs before panicking..after fitting new felts throughout! 
 The other thing I noticed about this lathe is that it is one of the so called interim 1947 models that Tony talks about on his lathe site.. It has a straight profile bed ( no "lips" at the bottom edge, the heavier feet and "south Bend" cast into the cross ribs.
I will post some photos when I work out how.

cheers everyone.

Thanks, Ted. That's a helpful sheet for me as I have one of those micrometer carriage stops.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply Mark. Can you explain to me where it mounts on my 10L? I've been looking around, but I can't see where it goes. Thanks, John.

I did not think SB made a 10 L gap bed lathe. But it looks a little like a piece to fill in the gap on a bed.

Hi, 

This part came with a 10L that I recently purchased. The seller seemed to think it had some thing to do with tailstock storage, but I still can't figure it out. Any ideas? Thanks, John.

Got it. Thanks for the help I really appreciate it, John.

I’ve never seen it attached but based on the doc Ted references it looks like you have to drill and tap holes into bed if you wish to use it.

It fits at headstock end of bed and is an accessory mount for micrometer stop and other things. Someone please chime in with the installation of accessories in the parts manual, I seam to have misplaced mine

It’s for storing the carriage stop

As mentioned the problem with our machine motors on VFD's are the strength of the winding's insulation. Many new motors are specifically designed for use with VFD drives. The other problem is motor cooling for fan cooled motors running under their rated rpm. The fan doesn't get to do its job...

Re: 10L motor replacement recommendations #10l i was able to do a simple DT to modify a C frame using the mounting bracket from the 1958 original F frame 1Ph . the motor was a left over from a job . i'm running a 2Hp vector drive ,with a bank of braking resistors ( for instant stop /reverse ) . i wanted the F class insulation for heat issues , . this is for my 13# ,still running a !ph on my 10 L #10l
