Recently I bought a lathe at a garage sale for $50.00. Like most garage sale items some things are missing. It is a walker turner "driver line". It has a four foot bed, but the base stand is missing. The spindle protrudes from the left side of the head as well with a reverse thread. I imagine for turning bowls. It is missing the morse #2 drive center. Where can I get parts and information? Thanks Joe
The good news is that you have a #2 taper, You can get parts for that based on almost any Lathe. I would recomend "The Lathe Book" by Ernie Cnover Taunton Press. He covers most of the setup of the lathe including how to build good legs out of plywood boxs.
thats a fine lathe, i have used one for years. keep in mind that the spindle has a different thread for faceplates than many other common lathes- I think its 1 1/4" x 12 thread buyt you can check it. Have fun!
