Comments:
This is a 1955 South Bend Heavy 10 lathe. Has a taper attachment, steady rest, follower rest and collet attachment. Has a dog plate and face plate, but no chucks, no collets, no toolpost, no belt, but does have a almost new Dayton 1-1/2HP 120v motor I'm going to pull out and replace with a 2HP 3 phase Reliance motor with a VFD. Has the large spindle with 1-3/8" spindle hole and will take up to a 1" collet. Has a bench cabinet.
