Thanks guy’s for the input, I’ll wait and see what is offered on eBay and other sites. The prices are kind of high for an original dial but that’s what I would hold out for to keep the lathe genuine SB. I want to pass down OEM to my progeny just as my dad did for me ! Thanks again for all your nice comments and observations !
Set up an alert on ebay, I see one sold for $40 last month:
Excellent condition threading dial for a South Bend 9 or 10K. It is not an original South Bend part but is well made. doesn’t appear to be a cheap import.
