An old friend passed on and I ended up buying his shop. One of the
things I have extra is an incredibly nice Model A South Bend 9" with the 3
1/2' bed. It has almost all the original "frosting" on it. Comes with a
lever collet attachment and collets, micrometer stop, steady rest, three jaw
Buck and four jaw Skinner chucks, two face plates, tail stock, of course,
Aloris-type quick-change tool post with holders (as well as the old
Armstrong holders) and is the cabinet model. Paint looks fairly new (tan).
It has been converted to a DC motor (Leeson 3/4 hp, 90v) with a
Variac/rectifier control (he never did like the solid state stuff!).
The lathe is located in Oklahoma City. I really don't want to split it
up and eBay it. It's just too nice with everything matched. And, too nice
for me to use in my shop. What should it market for, fairly?
