Through the years, no lathe has been as popular or iconic as a South Bend Heavy 10 lathe. This new Heavy 10 is a modern variation of our classic South Bend legend--esteemed throughout the world for always being reliable and exceptionally accurate. Not to be outdone, the SB1007 is a gearhead lathe packed with features and refinements usually found only on much larger, more expensive machines. The SB1107 is heavy enough to do a wide variety of jobs--yet light enough to be quick and responsive to the operator. Features include a 10.75" swing and 30" distance between centers, powered carriage and cross feeds, quick-change gearbox, all gear-head headstock, jog button, outboard spindle spider for gunsmithing, a D1-4 camlock spindle, precision German-made spindle bearings, and especially thick castings. Spindle speed is controlled via convenient headstock levers, offering an excellent range of speeds between 55 and 2200 RPM. A heavy-duty 3 HP Delta variable-frequency drive inverter ensures smooth, consistent torque at every speed from the 2 HP two speed 3-phase motor--without requiring 3-phase power. The inverter converts the power requirement for a single phase wall plug-in!
