First lathe

Well after lurking and doing a little work with a gunsmith I broke down and bought my first lathe. It is a south bend 415 rc with a 41/2 foot bed in mint condition from an estate sale it came with table wide asortment of accesories, all the gears to do threading. I will have to post some pic's after I get it cleaned up.

    If you weren't so far away, I'd sneak in and steal the durn thing!

    The extra stuff that came with is the expensive part.

    Good find!!

    Sure you do I researched the mod # and it looks like it should gitter done. If it's running a flat leather belt slap a serpentine belt on it, Ive seen some real good articles on how much better they are than the leather belts. I think Practical machinist had a how to on it.
