SB1007 South Bend® Heavy 10™ Gearhead Lathe
No metal lathe has been as popular or as iconic as a Heavy 10.
The Heavy 10™ 10" X 30" is a modern variation of the classic South Bend lathe and is known worldwide for its reliability and exceptional accuracy.
Thick castings, heavy weight and quality construction throughout provide the necessary brawn for demanding production and manufacturing tasks, yet light enough to be quick and responsive to the operator.
Spindle speeds are controlled by convenient headstock levers, which allow the operator to quickly set the spindle speed within the available range of 55-2200 RPM.
A heavy-duty 3 HP Delta variable-frequency driver inverter ensures smooth, consistent torque at every speed from the 2 HP two-speed 3-phase motor without requiring a 3-phase power.
The gearbox features quick-change gear knobs and the feed rod includes a slip clutch that disables automatic carriage feed when it contacts the feed stop or in the event of a crash.
To further ensure a high degree of accuracy, this lathe is equipped with German spindle bearings. The spindle is a D1-4 camlock with an MT#5 taper and 1.358" bore. The tailstock has an MT#3 taper and 3 1/8" of quill travel.
The SB1007 is covered by a South Bend 2-year warranty covering parts and factory defects. Tooling and other lathe-related consumables are not covered by this warranty.
The manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information.
The South Bend Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based. Parts are available online and shipped from the South Bend parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
