Need change gears made for my SB!

Postby haggard616 » Mon Mar 30, 2015 2:20 am

Anyone want to quote me a price? I have some really oddball gears I need for my unfortunately rare, South Bend 8". Believe it or not, the gears my lathe uses are as follows-
18DP, 5/8 bore, 3/8 thick, with a 3/16 wide key way. This is for my screw gears, which I'll need 6. I'll also need 2 stud gears, one 64tooth, the other 32. Those have the same measurements as the screw gears, Except, they have a bore of 1/2". I'm doomed unless I find someone willing to make them. I just bought this lathe last weekend, not knowing any better about change gears as this is my first lathe. Right now the only screw gear I have is a 92 tooth.. Which isn't even used for threading according to my gear plate.. It just powers my long feed. If I had a mill I would buy the cutters I need and make my own gears, it's just not possible for me for the foreseeable future. Feel free to email me a quote. Nhaggard07@yahoo.com

Just curious, 18DP is kind of odd, you say you don't have many gears but need many made, possibly you could switch to a DP that is more common on *all* gearing?
You might also look up Ted (SBLatheman) in the southbend forum at Practical Machinist. He must have a HUGE warehouse of stuff.
