    I was just searching through that page and found what the TKL meant, but I couldn't figure out the year or what the 12 meant. <br />
    <br />
    I knew grizzled owns SB, I'll probably order the serial number card. I guess it's useful? <br />
    <br />
    Thanks for the email to your friend Bob, I'll definitely tap that resource. <br />
    <br />
    I actually have a job for this machine right away too. Have a 12" sprocket I need to cut off an axle shaft and save all the parts, replace a bearing and reweld the sprocket on to the shaft. And of course it's all rusty and awesome.

    But that second to last digit could be an "I"...I'm fairly certain it's a 1.

    Ya, SB 13". I know for sure it's missing the lead screw for the compound and the tail stock. Also missing the belt cover. The paint is actually pretty good. It has been almost completely disassembled because the guy was going to restore it, then he got his hands on a 9" that was already restored. <br />
    <br />
    A previous owner made a running gear for it with super skookum metal casters and adjustable feet. He did a REALLY nice job building it too, whoever did it. <br />
    <br />
    I have no idea how some of the parts go on, but I may as well rebuild it while it's apart. The quick change gearbox and apron are off, so I'll have to see how all that works. I also haven't unwrapped either of the chucks, so I have no idea of their condition. <br />
    <br />
    Should be fun. Lathe fixing party in my shop, free pizza and beer....
