We opened a Makerspace in my town and I brought my lathe down to get it running. I am missing some parts. Any help finding the parts would be appreciated. Also some of the nomenclature. It is missing the motor and the big pulley. We need tooling. If you have this stuff around we will buy it. If you can tell me where to find it, I will appreciate it.

That's not a common lathe and you're probably going to have trouble finding original parts like that.

The part you're missing is the counter shaft. Is yours flat belt like the one in the pic?

You could easily make one up with some angle and a couple pillow blocks if you can find the pulleys. You could make the flat belt pulleys really easily if you had a lathe. :flipoff2:


This isn't the same, but the counter shaft assembly is probably close enough to work and if it goes for the opening price, cheaper than you'll do piecing it all together. Just need to find someone in MA to ship the parts to you.

For tooling, pick up an import quick change tool post off ebay. Bangood has cheap tooling and inserts that have been more than good enough for my hobby use.

Yes flat leather belt. I would rather get the correct piece although I will use the eBay and bangood tooling.


supposedly these were used on navy ships and sold under a bunch of brand names.

I can pick that up if someone else buys it.
