old craftsman late chuck adaptor


ok, so the identity of the lathe i inherited is now established. unfortunately, most all the parts are no longer available, specifically the bearings that seem to be the most likely to be needing replacement. oh well, i plan to get it running and run it a while and see how well the old ones hold up with grease and oil to help them along.
here is the lathe:

what i am going to need is an adaptor for the spindle, part 12. this is 5/8" diameter with flattend side as seen. so from what i gather is i need an adaptor from thius 5/8" spindle to the standard threaded spindle for a chuck plate.. does any animal exist???

Bearings are not proprietary parts and may be procured from bearing suppliers. You should discern the bore, the outside diameter, and the width of the races. These dimensions are sometimes indicated on the cover plates (the discs which retain the preloaded grease in the raceways). As to part 12, if after an exhaustive search of the web you might need to have a machine shop duplicate the part. Like the old barracks ballad, old lathes don't die they can be rebuilt. (Paraphrasing Gen. Mc Carther's farewell address to congress).

Auto part stores can order bearings. They have catalogs.
If you have a part - but it is messed up - be sure to take it to be replaced - it carries dimensions and much more. Martin

get the bearings out, hopefully you can read the part number on the side and like I did, just call your local bearing house for a replacement. They may also have the pulley key that you are looking for, if not, check out Ace hardware, etc.
