I have a Delta 46-715 wood lathe and 5 monthes ago the reeves pulley broke the flanges off. No problem, I ordered a new one from Delta, they said a week to 10 days. After not hearing anything for 3 weeks I E-mailed them back and they said, yeah about that, 30 to 90 days. I waited for 90 days and they sent me an E-mail and said you’re not going to get your pulley, not now, not ever.
It’s too good of a lathe to just throw away, but I can’t find OEM or after-market parts for it. What can I do, what are my options?

wow this is why I don’t want to by a delta lathe… This is not the first time I read something like this.

I would be looking on e bay for parts if you have not gone that route.

No Thanks for trying , but this one is different. I guess maybe I’m going to have to replace the motor with a variable speed unit. It won’t be right, but at this point I don’t rally have any choice.

Hey trackman don’t know if you found the solution for your lathe yet but mine just came apart tonight and in my searching I came across a post that states Grizzly has a reeves pulley system that works just the highest speed may throw the belt and its around $30 the part # is p0462009 I couldn’t find it on there website but plan on calling them tomorrow. Hope this helps and if you have found a solution sorry to have bothered you just found your post when I was researching.

Thanks

Hey Trackman you may have already found this or have come up with a different alternative in regards to your lath but if not and you still have the oldDelta Iron bed hanging around i have come across a company that supplies the replacement pulley heres the link, www.dewaltservicenet.com part #909945(original part #)$53+ shipping, if you have already moved on from the delta then i do apoligizeim a die hard and didnt want to give up so when i came across the link i had to share it with anyone i related to in the past over the lathe, hope this finds you well surrounded by saw dust

Thanks
Joe

I appreciate your post, but I finally got rid of the lathe. I broke down and bought a new Nova DXP. I am purposely staying away from anything Delta, I need to know that I can get replacement parts for my tools.
