South Bend SB1047PF Gearhead Lathe 21 x 80 Inch Reviews

South Bend SB1047PF Gearhead Lathe is one of the fantastic gearhead lathes of South Bend. It supplies an adjustable feed rod clutch and a stop collar on the feed rod. This is an awesome security feature when operating near the chuck. Set the stop collar that the saddle and device post are positioned at a secure distance from the chuck and tighten the lock screw. Modify the feed rod clutch to a low setting. In the event that the carriage comes into contact with the collar, the clutch slips, sparing your machine from a genuine crash.
