SB1049 Heavy 13, 13" x 30" Gearhead Lathe
Engineered from the ground up in the truest South Bend fashion.
The South Bend SB1049 Heavy 13 Gearhead Lathe is driven by a fixed speed 3 HP motor with convenient headstock levers to control the 8 spindle speeds between 80-2000 RPM.
The spindles are D1-5 camlock with an MT#5 taper, 1.57" bore, and equipped with Japanese NSK or NTN bearings. The tailstocks have an MT#3 taper and 1.968" of quill travel.
The bed of the lathe is constructed with patented Meehanite-processed castings that are hardened and precision-ground in the traditional three V-way prismatic design.
The SB1049 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 SB1049 manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information.
Parts may be available online and shipped from the South Bend parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
