1941 South Bend 13″ Lathe Restoration – Part 1 – Unloading

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at more metal machining and started looking around for a older metal lathe. I came across this gem about 60 miles from where I live. This is the first part of a journey into hopefully restoring/refurbishing this 1941 South Bend 13″x5′ Lathe.

Thanks to Joe, TJ, Mike and Chris for the help and borrowed equipment.
