SBL Serial Number File. E-mail your information to:  wswells@earthlink.net

 

Here is a page from South Bend that estimates the starting serial numbers by year. Provided by Robert Lang.

 

 The serial number is stamped on the tailstock end of the bed between the flat- and v-ways.  It Is used to determine the size and type of lathe, plus any special features or attachments.  The earliest records show that lathes were numbered sequentially, beginning with 700, in July 1910, and ending with 186,514 March 1947. After that date, a new numbering system added a three letter code to indicate 1) the swing, 2) the gear and apron combination and the location of the drive, and 3) the spindle hole size, type of swing, and special features.

 

Another very old South Bend Page from Robert Lang that explains the new numbering system.

1934

>>>>> 

Up until 1934 SB lathes we coated with japanning. 

Series "O" machines had the single wall apron.

Series "O" all have a star knob that is loosened shifted and tightened to select cross, neutral or long feeds.

Series "N" aprons have a knob that you push in and pull out for this function.

The double wall apron series "N" may not have been made after the late thirties (1937) due to market forces.

The R series lathes came out in the early thirties (1934). An R series lathe can always be identified because it will have the double wall apron with the more modern feed shift handle rather than star knob shifter.

If your workshop lathe is a 34 or 35 it's a catalog 405. It can be identified by the 1 3/8-10 spindle thread and the fact that it has no reveres shifter and the lead screw is left hand thread. If it does not have these three things then its not a 405. If it has the 1 1/2-8 spindle thread and has two bolts to hold each spindle bearing cap on its a catalog 520 toolmakers lathe. If it has just one bolt on each head stock bearing cap and has the 1 1/2-8 spindle and has a reverse shifter with right hand thread lead screw its a catalog 415. All three of these lathes will have the spindle oilier on top of the head stock bearing caps.

73622, 12/28/1936, 15" x 5', “N” Series, Catalog No. 114-B, I spoke to Ted at Leblond, he was able to locate the paperwork for my machine but was unable to identify it totally. According to the build sheet, it shipped 12/28/1936, was sold to a textile co. in Greenville SC. the tailstock was a #10; the head was a #7, the saddle a #2. Ted did not know the meaning of these numbers. The only thing it specified about the machine was that it was a single lever machine. Ted also expressed the rareness of a 15" machine. He said that maybe it was a smaller head mounted on a riser to obtain the 15 swing. I just went and looked at the head and tailstock. There are no risers on either. All the parts that I've managed to remove and clean up have had a 15-xxxx part number, so I'm confident it is a 15" machine.

To date, this is the earliest listed Heavy 10 (10L), note that it was ordered on 12/6/1939 and shipped 2/14/1940 to Alfred Herbert, a major machine tool maker (and dealer/agent?) in Britain. Also note this is a smooth bore headstock, non-segmented bearing surface.

94713, 10L x 3', Catalog No. 187-Y. My serial number is 94713, and the plate on the screw train cover states: Model 187Y, 3ft bed, and it has no chip tray or extras beyond the standard specification (1 3/8 spindle, QCG, cast base UMD. I'm the second private owner and I think it came to me in the same state that it was when bought at a government auction by the first private owner (Birmingham University Geology Department) in about late 1940s (information from one of the Department's technicians in 1968).  I had the lathe from the Department for its scrap value, provided that I moved it off the premises -- real soon!  Interestingly, a recent posting from another UK member gave his serial number as only about 10 or 20 digits away from mine -- they must have shared the same ship !  There are also some (original?) stamped numbers on a few of the castings. Some more history is given by a heavy cast brass plate on the right hand leg, with three lines reading (in cast letters) "Serial  |  No. 3R |  Air Ministry", and with the stamped number "70" above.

>>>>> 

94772, 10L x 3’, Catalog No. 987-Y. My lathe is South Bend Ser. No: 94772 followed by the letters in lower case 'dww'. The letters 'JAN' appear under the serial number.  The description plate calls it a 10-inch L, with model number 987-Y.  It has a 3 foot bed.  The spindle thread is 2-1/4" - 8-tpi. The lathe is on cast-iron leg stands with no tray or table (open underneath). There is a quick-change gearbox (single arm), and power feed in both directions on the apron/saddle. The counter shaft would have been floor mounted, but is now homemade replacement. The spindle bearing caps are marked 17 underneath. They appear to be all steel grooved super finished. The lathe has oil cups each end of the headstock.  The lathe is turquoise/blue with red between the bed and for wheels and inner parts of guards.

105161, 11/15/1940, 13” x 6’, Catalog No. 113-C, UMD QCG Floor lathe, The dealer is listed as GEN'L MOTORS OVERSEAS, NEW YORK, NEW YORK. Amongst the lathe characteristics, under "TRANS ATT" it says 100M, I guess this confirms that originally it had a metric transpose gear set confirming the observation by a Yahoo group member about the gear cover. Some items are handwritten, under "C F GEAR" (crossfeed?) it appears to say Std. Under "R P GEAR" (???) it seems to say P10 and Spindle length is given as 19 3/16" (which is normal for 1" bore spindle). In an unlabelled box presumably for special items it says "USE CUSTOMER'S MOTOR" 3/4 hp, 115V, DC, 1725RPM, make: DELCO. switch: 790, wiring diagram W406, V-belt no 2950. Under special electrical equipment it says: #CH 6102 EMF RESISTANCE PANEL (presumably that's a braking resistor?) On the ways before the serial number is "RASC" and underneath that "7361". Below the serial number are "JFP" and "DWW" On the back of the bed at the tailstock end is a nicely engraved brass plate that says "YD No 2783" RASC could be Royal Army Service Corps (it was called that from 1918-1965 so the period fits). The core was responsible for supplying the army so had a lot of vehicles, and facilities to service them. Amongst the vehicles they used was the GMC workshop truck, which was fitted with a generator and a lathe....

115684, 7/23/1941, Heavy 10 was shipped from the factory to Rerranti Electric Ltd., Mount Dennis, Ontario, Canada. Rerranti was a clerical error made? and should have been Ferranti. Mount Dennis, Ontario, was absorbed by Toronto as Toronto mushroomed northward post-WW2. Serial number 115684 is followed by D.W.W. Centered under the serial number is J.F.P.

I came across it in very dirty condition in the cellar of an old house. It had lost some teeth from the bull gear and had been abandoned (there was neither time nor manpower available then for maintenance work so it had hardly had any use at all) Cleaned up and checked out with test bars and tenth clocks it is amazingly accurate and equal to toolroom standards.

Brass diamond-shaped medallion riveted to front leg stating: " 2 21A GSA 3" No clue as to what the GSA tag translates to... Not sure of its life after the teacher's college, but this 10 was working at a gunsmith's business in Fayette City, PA, until sold to a gentleman in Perryopolis, PA. I inherited the lathe from that same gentleman when he passed away; he was my wife's grandfather. Completely stripped down & restored in 2006/2007   Very good condition.

121445, 12/19/1941, 10L x 4', Catalog No 8187-AN, Tool room lathe, it has 1 & 3/8" spindle, while the original 110/60/1 phase motor is now 230/50/1 phase 1 hp for NZ. Tool Room model. With a taper attachment,  single-tumbler gearbox, stamped F.W.M. According to this lathe's 'birth certificate' obtained last month from Marty Schubert at LeBlond, The order for the lathe was received on 9/10/1941. The lathe left the SB plant described as follows: "D/D UMD Tool Room, in lieu of segmented steel bench, hard maple 8-drawer per xxxxxx (unreadable), painted olive green color". So, it was originally on a 2" thick maple slab bench top. The machine was shipped out to the US Army Air Corps on December 19th, 1941 to the Quartermaster at Plane haven, California. The dealer was C.M. Cosiger Machinery Co, Dayton, Ohio. Shipped to New Zealand. The USAAC may not have even uncrated it in NZ. Motor is under slung, but in very substantial 8-drawer cabinet manufactured by the previous owner. He also installed a beautifully smooth-operating clutch unit INSIDE the belt driven cone shaft pulley (ie, the big one above the motor shaft). At the end of WWII the US forces left a lot of machinery in NZ - this was stored by the NZ military stores before being put up for tender in the early 1950's. The toolmaker/watchmaker who was the owner previous to me purchased the machine in the early 1950's from the NZ Govt Stores Board - he stored the lathe for about 12 years, still in it's original crate (he had two other lathes as well), before eventually setting it up. Over the last couple of years he pulled the lead screw, gears & gearbox to remove the damaged half nuts (chuck collision maybe?). Having beautifully rebuilt and repainted the gearbox and banjo bar/gears, the lathe was then left covered for a year after he died. I purchased it last month for US$1268, including all the tooling, boring bars, chucks, drills, centers, faceplates, dog drivers, instruments and the steel/brass/stainless stock that went with it.

171382, 9" x 4-1/2’, Workshop Model A, QCG.  It was purchased new from the Wessendorff Nelms and Co, Houston Texas in April 1947. The original owner worked as general machinist in the Houston area and retired to Minnesota in the 1970's, bringing the lathe with him. His son sold the lathe this summer. I have the parts list, the "How to run a lathe" and S B bulletins H1, H2, H3, and H4 that came with the lathe. I have not contacted the company to find out when it was shipped, but from your web information, it was probably manufactured in 1946. The lathe has had more than average use, and has some bed dings and wear, but the gears and headstock bearings are fine. I have cleaned and oiled it, and it now runs very smoothly.

The serial numbered bed came out of the factory after the auction. The lathe shares the same serial number as a lathe that was longer and shipped to a customer in NY that year. SB shipped the wrong length bed machine and it was returned and all the components were swapped out onto a 42-inch bed and then shipped. As all the paper work was in place identifying this serial number this bed could not be used again and was just put on the shelf. It has taken four years to find all the new parts to complete the project.

352NAR7 - 186842, 3/28/1947, 9" x 4', Workshop Model 9A. Intermediate casting style. Besides the feet it has two other odd features. The South Bend name is cast onto the ribs between the front and back ways. You have to be looking down on the bed to see it. The other thing is my lathe may have both an old style serial number and a new one. The second number is between the two rear ways behind the headstock. I do remember that the number is close to the number given on South Bend's website as the last old serial. But the number on mine is larger by about 400 or so.

When I bought the machine it was in his basement shop which was humidity controlled and there was absolutely no rust or patina on any of lathe. It looked as new.

32531NAR9, ?/?/1953, 9" x 4-1/2', Workshop Model A, Catalog No. CL444-R. 6-speed HMD bench lathe, My father gave this to me recently. My grandfather bought this lathe from the first owner and used it mainly to make small parts for water meters. Unfortunately, granddad passed away just before I was born. It has seen very little use in the last 39 years. It seems to be in very good condition as dad was always careful to preserve it even though he didn't use it much. I am in the process of cleaning it now, but I have no intentions of repainting it. Somehow I get the feeling that Grandpa would have liked to see it being used and lovingly taken care of rather than restored.

13426KKX7, 5/20/1968, 10K x 3-1/2’, Model A, Catalog No. CL370-ZD, UMD Metal Cabinet Floor Lathe  with factory variable speed drive.  Shipped to Gilbert and Richards in Connecticut, the original purchaser. Has hardened ways and came with a full set of 6K collets and a quick release lever. (I did not get the collets or lever when I bought it however) The motor is 1 hp 3-phase. This lathe is somewhat unusual because it has a factory variable speed drive on it. I called once and talked to Randy at South Bend about the drive. I wanted to get information on it as well as some part numbers. He told me that SB had never made such a drive and that what I had must have been some after market item someone had installed. I told him it was a South Bend product because of the speed tags attached to it, which were the red and gold metal tagging. I was persistent about this and he went off to take another look. He came back saying he had worked there for 25 years and had never heard of such a thing, but he had found info on it in the files. Apparently SB made a few of the 10K's with the variable drive during 1967 and 1968, and I had one of those. The drive hardware was made by South Bend, but they purchased a variable pulley from HI-Lo Manufacturing Co.(located in Minnesota) and installed this when the lathe was built. The headstock has only one pulley in the middle of course, since there is no belt position changing to be done. I have talked with a couple of other people who have the same machine but there can't be too many of them around.
