I don't know the Delta model numbers very well, but I assume this is a
wood lathe. I have seen spindles and complete headstocks on Ebay for
various Delta lathes. Search delta lathe from time to time.
There is usually only one page of stuff there, so it won't take long to
look. I think I see about one spindle every couple of weeks and maybe
a couple of headstocks in a couple of weeks. From time to time, I see
a delta headstock-looking thing there that they often call a "Sander" or
something. If you see one and know what you are looking for, it may be
that the spindle from that device will fit yours.
Is the spindle you are replacing totally destroyed? Maybe it could be
it may be able to be fixed. not sure. the threaded end with the taper
in it is split in 2 places. i may be able to add a nut to hold it
together. i am just getting started on this project so i realy dont
have a plan yet. depends on parts available. i have not checked ebay
yet. was hoping for new but that doesnt look like its gonna happen
Oh, I was thinking you needed new centerpoint not the actual spindle
I'd take it to my machine shop guy. In all likelihood it can be welded
and then remachined.
Other than that you're looking in the retro bins I'm afraid...
I suppose you have checked w/ Delta? Years ago you could have gotten to
a real engineer who might have been able to either give you a
cross-reference or other lead, but now not so much.
Also, they used to actually machine old parts on a periodic basis as I
have an ancient old 8" jointer that needed a part on the fence angle
adjustment mechanism that was out of production. Took a couple of
months but they did turn one and sent it on. That was probably 10 years
ago now, though, and I've not had occasion (fortunately) to try my hand
tried the website. worthless as it is. since B&D they dont support
nuthin! if its out of production more than a couple years you are
SOL... ill keep checking the bone yards but probly just gonna mount a
chuck and run it. i can get around not using the spur center by useing
the wood worm screw in the chuck. thanks all and if ya come up with a
better idea i am listning! :-]
been there. unfortunately none of the spindles are available. i got a
chuck for it with a wood worm screw and will just have to deal with
the limitations. fortunately i have another lathe for things that need
to be done with a drive spur.
