Subject: [southbendlathe] 13" South Ben information

Where do you find information such as year built, etc.? I searched the data
base and all the South Bend sites I could find but only came up with general
info I already knew.
The previous owner of the lathe can't find the book/paper work that came
with the lathe, and is afraid it may have been discarded. What did come with
South bends and where could I find reproductions if they exist?

Hi John also

If you give me your catalog number I can scan in an image from the
correct year catalog for you. If you email me at dennis.Turk at
horizon.net I can send it to you. I also have a small stash of
spare
parts for the early 9 inch. I currently have a 1927 9 Jr. going
through restoration right now so I should be able to answer just
about
any question about your lathe you may have.

Turk


Hello John,
Welcome, Your lathe by serial number and casting date would
probably
be a 1928, built sometime in January, you can confirm this by
emailing
Lablond. They should be able to tell you the ship date. tear down
the
lathe for movement, everything will bolt right back up, after you
clean
it. Don't run the lathe until you have cleaned and checked the
headstock bearings. There is much info in the files to help.
There is
a
wealth of knowledge in the members of this group, great guys.
I for one would like to see pictures of your Junior...I like the
old
ones...

Hi Brian,

 

Why is there this obsession with backlash? Backlash is inevitable; just make sure that any adjustment in the position of the slide is done in the same direction each time and that the load of the cut is taken against the screw.

Regards

 

Brian Smart 

 

What I have found is even with the tool height dead on centre,  on a really coarse thread like 8TPI, there comes a moment where the tool is perhaps loaded a bit too much.  The system flexes a bit and the tool which was loaded against the thread of the screw, is suddenly pulled into the work.  If the backlash is minimal (like less than 0,010"0 there doesn't seem to be much of an issue.  But with 0.030" backlash, the tool is pulled forward and and then downward. 

 

I've had a 1/4" tool look fine doing beautiful threading and suddenly 'bang',  the tool bit has been damaged.  For finer threads it's not been an issue.  I did a beautiful 1/2-10 TPI ACME on  my SB.  But I have yet to be able to do an 8TPI on 1" diameter.

 

So my lathe is worn.  Backlash is an issue that needs to be kept in mind.

Old lathe in a corner

saco.1973 <saco.1973@...>
 

Hi. I'm new to yahoo and just want to say that this forum is my
sole reason for joining.
I work in the engineering dept. at a small gray iron foundry in
Pa. My boss was digging through one of the many storage buildings
that we have on site and he found an old South Bend lathe burried in
a corner. He told me to dig it out, clean it up, and make it work.
We have been spending a lot of money to have the local machine shop
make simple metal parts for our paterns and he figured that if I
learn how to run this lathe they can save most of that money.
The head of the maint. dept and I are on a mission to get this
puppy back up and running as soon as possible. He has a ton of
little projects that it will help him with. As it stands right now I
don't know how to use a lathe myself but the guy that is helping me
has a fair knowledge of using one, but we are both in the dark about
fixing an old one that needs new parts and some TLC.
If any of you could help with some information for the
restoration it would be much appreciated.
So far this is what I know about it.

Model A
Catalog # CL650RG
Bed length 4 1/2'
Serial # 13782KAX2

The information on South Bend's website says that the Model A
lathes were 9" swing but I just got an e-mail today from DeWitt
Engle at LeBlond LTD. and he said that it was a 10" swing an was
shipped on Dec. 6 1968. I have no reason to doubt the ship date but
I am confused abut the swing.
If anyone out there has any information that would be helpful in
fixing the old girl up I would appreciate it. Remember, I don't need
to fully restore it into a show piece, I just want to make it into a
reliable tool that I can use at work.
If you have any documentation that may come in handy please e-
mail me at saco1973@hotmail.com
