>Does anybody have a lead on where I can find parts for an old Craftsman 12" lathe? The bolt for the shoe clamp that holds the tool rest assembly has slowly become stripped and no longer holds. It's a "special" bolt with a nut welded to it and the adjustment handle welded to the top. I'm dead in the water until I get it fixed.
Is there a good replacement tool rest assembly that would fit the 2 1/4" diameter base? I wouldn't mind having something sturdier than the stock part.
