Subscribing to this thread - not a machinist by any stretch of the imagination but I just picked up this:

It's a 9" South Bend Workroom Lathe - now I just have to track down a supplier of A, B and C lubricants as specified in the manufacturer's chart:

Very nice find. I love my south bend.

Plus you seem to have a load tooling.

I wish I had a head that took 5c collets I have to deal with a 3 jaw most of the time.

Those look like 3AT collets... Too small diameter and too long to be 5C, though I may be wrong.

My SB has a collet head... It is absolutely fantastic!

You could be right, I have never used either c5 or 3at. I would take either one since I have neither.

Collets are nice. It was the deciding factor on spending the money on the lathe I purchased.

To top it off, my housemates pitched in a couple of Christmas's ago and bought me a set of Sharps 5C collets That was an excellent Christmas... I think I got either steel or lead/brass that time through... And I loved it

I really have to get something going at home. Eventually I want to stop just doing g-jobs here at work. I just feel like I will be let down by anything I can afford

Nice south bend too

I got a monster of an idea for my CNC. Right now I can only make 8 parts a day out of one plate for my pump handles, but if I can make this thing work i will quadruple the output to 32 in just about the same amount of time. I will have to get a screen shot from Solidworks at work tomorrow.

You do know that they allow a "home use" seat along with every licensed seat you have? AutoDesk does as well.
