Select 816b or David 400 Lathe or Parts


Jun 11, 2020
I have a Select 816b lathe. The Select is similar to the South bend, and was made in Taiwan in around 1979. It weights in at around 275 lbs. without motor or stand. Based on my research, there is a lathe just like this one that is called a David 400. AFAIK, These lathes are made by Lin Huan.

Looking for another Select 816b or David 400 lathe in better condition, or one for parts. Does not need to have stand. Here are some photos of the lathe. so, if anyone runs into one of these lathes, I would be interested in it.
