1941 South Bend 13″ Lathe Restoration – Part 9 – Apron Disassembly

In this episode of the 1941 South Bend lathe restoration/refurbishment saga, I disassemble the apron. The apron has several gears and levers that are used to move the saddle and cross slide. A number of these parts are held together with taper pins that can only come out one way, unless the are busted in multiple pieces and no longer line up with the holes. The ride on the struggle bus was not always fun.
