south bend metal lathe

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 8:55 pm

i spent the morning at an auction and picked up a south bend metal lathe.  i ran into a friend, john, from the OWWM forum who was able to help me go over the lathe. once i had won the bid on the lathe i had to get the tool cabinet that was next to it as well.  all the tooling and accessories for this lathe were in it.  when it came up someone else wanted it too and we bid it up to $700 before i stopped.  then a second later he said “oh i wanted the cabinet on the end”  so we started over with the cabinet i wanted, which i then got for $300
