South Bend - 14" x 40" Lathe with DRO
South Bend® quality is built into every one of these fantastic gearhead lathes! Features include electronic variable speed, universal QC gearbox, extra long saddle for stability, pull out chip pan, and of course, a full compliment of standard equipment that includes 3 & 4-jaw chucks, steady & follow rests, micrometer carriage stop and a lot more.
These South Bend EVS lathes are supplied with an adjustable feed rod clutch and stop collar on the feed rod. This is a great safety feature when working close to the chuck. Set the stop collar so the saddle and tool post are positioned at a safe distance from the chuck and tighten the lock screw. Adjust the feed rod clutch to a low setting. If the carriage comes into contact with the collar, the clutch slips, saving your machine from a serious crash.

I recently got the machine set up and the quality far exceeded my expectations. I was leery at first, but after numerous conversations with tech support prior to the purchase, I was convinced that this was the real deal. I have owned numerous older manual American made machines and wanted quality like those provided. If you buy one of these machines, you won't at all be disappointed with the high quality, very well written instructions and great support.
