Advice for a Oregon lathe daughter?


Doug Scott
 

Dear South Bend Lathe folks, 

My dad, Doug Scott, loved reading the emails in this group even though he didn't post much after getting his 1947 SB 9" Model A up and running in 2013! He passed away this year, and we're at a loss about how to rehome his beloved, restored SB lathe. We don't have the capacity to pack and ship it - it's 500 lbs -- so it would have to go to someone who would be willing to come and pick it up in Portland, OR. We'd accept any reasonable offer. 

Any locals or anyone who might have advice about how to reach out to fellow SB lathe enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest? What would you recommend doing? 

Here's what I know about it from his description: South Bend 9” Model A lathe, Serial number 169927JAN (manufactured 1947). Fully restored in 2013 – new felts, bearings throughout lathe, new drive screws and nuts in compound and cross slide, new drive gear in cross slide. Newer motor and Dayton switch (wired for forward and reverse), 110v, 1HP. Comes with newer Shars 3 jaw 6” chuck, older South Bend 4 jaw chuck, ER32 collet chuck and collets, 3C drawbar and 3 3C collets, drive plate and lathe dogs, wedge type quick change tool post and 6 tool holders, Jacobs chuck and die holders, one live and two dead centers, steady rest, rebuild manual, full set South Bend oils.  Small nicks in ways near headstock. 



I'm posting from my dad's email, which I'll keep checking for replies, but I'm also reachable at clairescott@...

Thank you in advance for your help and guidance! 

Claire Scott

I think you should be able to get at least $2000 for this very nice lathe. I’d pay that, if I didn’t already have its one year younger brother.
 
I hope someone will soon discover this lathe for sale and bring it home and enjoy it as much as your father obviously did.
 
With your permission, I will post a notice on Practical Machinist in the South Bend forum.
 
Regards,
 
Jan

Facebook has South Bend 9 and South Bend buy and sell groups.

Don't ignore his bookshelf.

Some books are stupid expensive.

Claire,

Looks like your dad turned out a very handsome reguvenation of the S.B. Model A.   I've had consistently good results when selling home-size machine tools on Craigslist, here in Seattle.  You can qualify prospective buyers on the phone, before giving out your address.  IMO, it would sell quickly at $1,500.

Regards,

Lawrence
