Title pretty much says it all, I need a spare parts Southbend model 9 or one to use parts from this one on another, I acquired one for cheap and the ways, gears, and jaws are very good condition but it is missing some parts so I am hoping to find another destined to the junkyard Southbend and rescue it also. Anyways if you know of any sitting around somewhere please let me know!

That's a tough one. Most any Southbend I've looked at - including the ones that should be sold for scrap, carry "collector" pricing. However, I have seen people parting out perfectly good lathes on Ebay. Have you looked there? Might be an economical solution if you are only missing small parts.

Yeah I figured it would be but you never know unless you ask, I checked ebay and everyone wants a "collecter price" for a simple part. I figure someone may have had something with damaged ways, missing gears or along those lines that would've diminished the value greatly. The one I snatched up the guy thought it was a wood lathe.

I am actually missing countershaft and back gear cover are the big items, damaged items are 1 foot, tailstock spindle lock and bull gear cover.

Do you know about owwm.org? I would ask around there for the specific parts you need. There are a lot of hoarders on that site and people are quite friendly. The forum has a dedicated section for metalworking machines.
