Acquired an old SB lathe. This site says my pic is too large, not sure how to add them. I will keep trying. The only numbers I can find are on the end of the bed between the v and flat, they are 37402 N. On the front name plate it has a 13. Any help greatly appreciated. Also, I know operating condition means a lot, but what would be the price range to sell something like this.

QT: Help with dating this old thing.​

Tell her she is pretty and try to agree with some of the things she says.

A vacuum salesman appeared at the door of an old lady's cottage and, without allowing the woman to speak, rushed into the living room and threw a large bag of dirt all over her clean carpet. He said, "If this new vacuum doesn't pick up every bit of dirt then I'll eat all the dirt."

The woman, who by this time was losing her patience, said, "Sir, if I had enough money to buy that thing, I would have paid my electricity bill before they cut it off. Now, what would you prefer, a spoon or a knife and fork?"

Is there any theory about the replacement compound slide?
 
No, I have very little info and tooling. What I do know is the gentleman that last had it built motorcycle race motors, I was told he put the new 8” 3 jaw on to set up cranks. I have a 5”, 6.5” 3 jaw, and a steady rest. I have what appears to be the original motor that came on it. It’s 3 phase, still runs and is not on it though. There is a 220 v motor on it. Everything seems to work and feed. I believe the original gear cover is gone, the one on it appears hand made. It has tray and cast legs.
I would love to sell this thing. I can help deliver within 100 miles. I am in northwest Illinois.
