SB1065F 34" x 72" Big Bore Lathe, 9" Bore

Looking down the bore of a Big Bore Lathe is like looking straight down the barrel of a huge cannon!

With an extra-large 9" spindle bore and inside/outside spindle noses for mounting chucks on both sides of the headstock, the South Bend SB1065F can handle monster-sized workpieces such as large-diameter oil pipes or hydraulic cylinders.

They are exquisitely built with ultra-tight tolerances, and the headstocks and gearboxes are assembled in a laboratory-like environment to ensure absolutely pristine bearings and fittings for a lifetime of rugged use.

Each lathe is custom-built to order, allowing you to select (and pay for) only the accessories you need. You'll benefit from having extremely large chucks precision-fitted at the factory and already dialed in when your machine arrives.

The SB1065F manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The complete and easy-to-read manual provides instructions on how to assemble and maintain your lathe.

The SB1065F comes with a 2-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects.
