Re: Old South Bend lathe. [3 Attachments]

Yes, I do think it's early.  I'll be picking it up tomorrow and will add more information.  I've always liked old machinery- the feel, the colors, the quality of the castings.  I have a modern drill press and an ancient Delta, and I always gravitate to the Delta.  Modern machinery is just without soul, in comparison, although it's arguably much more effective for production work, which I won't be doing with this beautiful old lathe.  Thanks all for the quick relies.

Welcome to the group Peter.

If you can post the serial number, on the tailstock end, between the first and second way,  we can come close to estimating the date it was built.

I do agree it’s an early one.

Just curious if there are. I'm wondering how well, or not, anyone likes
the 8K that was discontinued and cleared out last year for under $2000.

I've seen quite a few raves about the larger new South Bend lathes on
other forums, but that 8K was obviously a very much altered 9x20, except
for some reason left untouched was the 9x20's worst feature the flimsy
compound slide mounting ring.

It would be interesting to see a comparison between the 8K and any 9x20.

Far as I've seen, all the 9x20's and 8x20's are near identical and all
share the same problems that no manufacturer* has bothered to fix in the
long history of knockoffs of the Emco 8x20.

*Except the new South Bend, but then they went and made it an 8" and
used cogged belts for the gearbox drive, and didn't improve the cross
and compound slides. Certainly not the equal of the venerable 9" Workshop.

Re: Chuck Swap

john kling
 

The Jacobs head stock chucks are very useful. How do they compare in run out to the standard scroll chucks? The scroll chucks come in adju true forms so fine tuning can compensate for chuck run out/ware.  I have never seen a chuck such as the Jacobs (less than 3/4" capacity) with this capability. Do they exist?


Re: Newby

eddie.draper@btinternet.com
 

Very sorry John. Not for sale.  It's in nice nick and complete.  We use the taper turning for making taper threaded plugs for boilers.  That was the only thing that saved its life when I went to inspect it 2 years ago, and I took a chance on it being in usable or repairable condition.  Turned out to need only a clean, headstock bearings tweak and new felts.

Tip:  UK lube oil sources:  I purchased 5 litres of ISO 22 for the headstock bearings by searching for oil merchants / lubricants suppliers in yellow pages, cost about £15 2 years ago, I got given 25 litres of ISO 32 hydraulic oil (you might be able to scrounge the odd litre from a big user) which is always used in the apron wick feeds and during the winter everywhere except the headstock mandrel bearings, and in the summer it gets ISO 220 on the everything else bits instead.  Again, should be cheap enough at a lubricants supplier.  We're fortunate in that it is the same as used for steam loco bearings and comes in 205 litre barrels.  I've avoided any temptation to use the other stock item, ISO 1000 steam cylinder oil.

Good Morning Mike.

 

Yes the reply and this post have several different fonts.

I have Outlook set so the default font is Garamon 12 point. The Garamon font uses the least ink when printing. Ink is very expensive. HP almost gives away the printer and make it back on the in, .

In your reply below,  The font is Verdana 12 Point. It should be the same as my default font is size, but it appears to be bigger.

 

In my first reply the fonts were changed because I copied and pasted things from somewhere else. When doing this Outlook keeps the pasted font for a bit.

 

The UTL to the group is in Verdana 9 point. The Login URL was in Calibri 11, which should be smaller than the main body of the test.

 

I can easily change the size of the text in my replies, (this is 14 point)

Or the font, this is Arial.

So It’s not on your side, It is controllable on my side.

OK. I use nothing but laser printers since they have become VERY affordable and ink cost and drying up are not an issue. Even on my cheapest laser printer (Samsung ML-1865W) I get 1500 pages average out of a $30 toner. I have a color laser as well but print very little in color.

In this case you can either use a browser and go to the email account (say Yahoo.com) or (my preference) use an email client like Outlook, Lightning, or the Mail app on your cell phone.

 

Now INITIAL  posts that appear on the home site, do not have the posters email address attached. (I believe this is a security feature).

However INITIAL posts that are sent to an email account do have the senders email address attached.

I just checked, using a browser (Firefox)  my ISP’s home page and this is true.  On my work station, I use Outlook and its true. It’s true on my IPhone. I have Lightning on my laptop and it’s also true.

 

Now when you sign up to get your posts and reply by email AND you use an email client you get the replays and posts almost instantaneously. If you use a browser you must periodically “poll” the source.

 

There is one case where IN going to the home page you WILL see a respondents email address.  IF a REPLIER replies to a post he/she has received by EMAIL  and he/she DOES NOT trim the post, including only enough information to continue the thread, then the email address will be posted on the home page.

 

Fortunately, since we have set the group up as a restricted group,  the home page is visible only to members.  (I think)

 

I am a privacy nut.  I am not warm about this. Please trim your replies.

 

So back to Jim O. If you want to see a members email address, you need to set your preeferences up to receive emails.

Go to the home page and login;

https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?.src=ygrp&.intl=us&.lang=en-US&.done=https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/SOUTHBENDLATHE/info

 

 

Under the piicture you will see “membership”, click on it

New Window

On the left you will see “Subscription” with a pincel after it.

Click on the pencil

Check Individual email

 

Above “Subscriptions” you will see the email address the posts will be sent to. If you want another address you can do that also.

(It’s a different place)

 

If you do this, set up email, you will need to either go th the email account with a browser or set yor email client up to receive the emails at the address you noted above.

 

Yes you can ask as many questions as you need to get your problem squared away.

A great explanation Jim B. but I have one question. When YOU post a message your's is the only one that appears on my laptop in a font SO small I almost need a magnifying glass to read it. All other posts are fine except of course Nelson Collar whose posts I can read from the other side of the room the font is so BIG!! LOL!!. In your reply to Jim O. the font was very small until near the end where you say "So back to Jim O......." and at that point it is what I would call almost normal. Do you think this is an issue at your end or mine. Like I said, all other member posts are fine. Just curious.

Hi Jim,

Well, I'm showing my computer ignorance here, because I'm not actually sure how I receive posts, I assume I'm going to the home site, because I almost never check my yahoo email.

I did, however, just check and found an email from Aaron (he was able to see my email address easily) and we have indeed arranged a swap.

If you can help me to figure this out it would be much appreciated, but you don't know who you're dealing with here...

Thanks, Jim O.

Re: Newby

Flash Gordon
 

HI Phil,

SB wanted lathe owners to buy everything from them so they tried to make their lathes unique. There was little standardization even across their own line. When you ordered parts from them you had to include your serial number. They kept records on all the lathes they built by serial number.  So when you ordered a part they would send you one that would fit your lathe.

It is a problem now when you buy a part off ebay, it may not fit your lathe even if it is the same model.

I'm curious whether anyone knows why SB used a non-standard taper for the spindle.  Was there a time when nobody standardized on these things?  Or did they have some practical reason for developing something entirely off the beaten track?
