Subject:
Delta Lathe Repair Question

Barry Irby
>About seven years ago, I bought my son a lathe at Home Depoe (I think). It was about $400. I have forgotten the model number. My son sold it before Christmas to a friend for a Christmas gift.

The lathe has a head that swivels and slides. There is a square "shackle" inside the head that has a cam in it that locks the head in place. The shackle broke. Somehow, this is my problem.

The people that bought the lathe claim Delta has stopped making the lathe and no longer support it. On some occasion I looked it up and the shackle did not have a part number. It seems to me there was a "46" in the lathes designation.

Does anyone know the model number and whether or not parts are available?
