  • Does anyone know what this is?

    Does anyone know what this may be from? Given it is brass and somewhat substantial, my guess might be a lathe or machine tool. The inscription reads: "South Bend Studebaker Model Manufactured by Municipal Supply Company, South Bend, Indiana, U.S.A."

    It's off of a South Bend Lathe. I used to have one. 9X36. Good little lathe. It was worn out when I got it and I wore it out a little further.

    As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

        The word "Studebaker" somehow in my mind, does not fit! Does that mean this machine was made exclusively FOR Studebaker? South Bend Lathe was not a division of Stude. was it?

            Studebaker didn't own them. It was made for Studebaker. The one I had said Douglas Aircraft.

                The plaque was originally used on a Studebaker Street Flusher. Studebaker held the patent (1905) on this device but in the teens they sold it to the Minicipal Supply Company of South Bend who manufactured it. I believe they were still producing these into the 1920's. I have an original copy of the 20 page color catalog showing the street flushers as well as the history of the product. It is from the teens. Digital images available on request. rtq11@aol.com
