I have an old Delta-Milwaukee wood lathe, serial number 27-274, that
inherited from my dad. Don't know how old it is, but it is one of m
earliest memories as a child and I'm pushing 50. It didn't get much us
as I recall, and is still in good physical and working condition.
recently changed out the belts which I assume were as old as me.
It has a Delta Milwaukee cross-slide compound which I use for th
occasional turning of aluminum parts. I can find no identifying mark
on the compound at all.
I recently noticed noticed that it was making poor cuts, and the too
was "diving" in to the work. I investigated and found that the bras
Acme lead screw nut on one of the axiis was not only loose, but i
quite worn as well.
Can anyone on the forum refer me to a source of data and parts on thes
old lathes and accessories? The local shop basically said "good luck"
