Default Raised 16" South Bend Lathe

A South Bend last he has came across my travels.

It's a 16" swing but on risers....looks factory.
Has a taper attachment and 3&4 jaw chuck.

What are the trouble spots to look for?

Asking price is $2000

105" between centers.

It would work for light cuts at that diameter, but it wouldn't be a production machine. Seems a bit high in price though. Not many shops would have a use for it.

Tim,

I am not experienced with SB lathes but I believe they need a complete set of
change gear for threading. If the 16" come with all the gears and some other
extras it might be worth $2000 but that seems high to me.

Now the stuff you post on Atlanta's CL, now that is interesting. Can you get it
unloaded at your end, that is a lot of iron.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Far as the Craigslist add I found, unloading on my end wouldn't be a issue. Waiting for a email back to see if either milling machine is available still.
