Grizzly purchased South Bend but did not make South bend lathes That made South bend great. After all the 10K had roots back in 1920 with 8 then in 1930 9N (9A, 9B and 9C) and then South bend in 1950 razed the 9 3/8' and call it the 10K this last in to 1990's it is still a good lathe today.This is a picture of a South Bend Heavy 10 as made in 1967. Nothing like the China made item.
Iy's rather refreshing to know that NEW parts are available for good old machinery. Myford are probably part reconditioning old-ish Super7'. Mine is 'as new' from the original Myford factory and has power cross feed and the integral gear box. None of it would appeal to the comedians that who have difficulty in discovering where they put their pocket bookGrizzled has patterns from South bend and drawings. Let's not forget they had parts too.
Grizzlies can manufacturer South bend lathes than copy some else lathe.
