I just bought an older Delta 12×36 wood lathe and there are some missing parts. The drive center and live center are missing as well as tool rests. I have ordered a new drive and live center from PennState but I am having trouble locating a tool rest. I would prefer to have a Delta rest of the same vintage as the lathe, 1962. The rests in question are the 4”, cat #690 and the 12”, cat# 692. I know that replacements are availble from different online suppliers including Mikes Tools but I don’t want the new rests. I have also placed a WTB on OWWM and haven’t had much response as of yet. If someone here has an older rest with a 1” post I would appreciate a note if you would like to sell.
