Very impressive and creative work, pat1027. We don't see that many South Bends of that age around. I believe these were the "N" series. I have a 1933 11" and has the same type QCGB and apron. The support of the co shaft and motor is really heavy biz. The reason is, course, these were designed for overhead line shafts. The line shaft cones presented "pulling up" of the spindle to balance the work load at the bearings. The way it was constructed with an individual motor , co shaft above, was the way to drive it. Mine has the "silent chain" drive and huge motor but only a project now.
