    It's an old South Bend with an add-on leather drive. Chuck is 6 inches or so. I have a 4 jaw which is larger for it.
    I have had it so long I often forget how to use it. When I do, I have to relearn it!

    SB = South Bend 9 = the max diameter work you can mount (4.5" from center)
    I learned on an old Heavy 10. Im guessing yours from late 20s? Early 30s? The change box is a style I had not seen before! Kind of want one now. I like my Atlas well enough, but the SB has that place milled out in my heart

    Steve, It is a model 911A, 11 in swing, 4 foot bed. Serial is 80892. Dating these things seems confusing.
    It's shure-enough old, though.
