I just received a Dunlap Lathe Model Number 103.21600 from a member of our woodworking club. He believes that the lathe was made in the 1950’s. It is from Sears Roebuck. I was hoping that someone may have some information on this model lathe and where I might find a manual and if you can still find parts. The lathe is rusty and need a lot of clean-up work on it. I am in the process of cleaning it up. Let me know if there is any information on this model.

Thanking you in advance for any help that you may provide.

That is a good little lathe.
I am still working on my 103.21600.
I just built a table for my 103.23070.
It is amazing how a 60+ year old tool can be just as good today as it was then.
Good luck on your restore.

Was just given a 103.21600 lathe. Excellent condition!

Does anyone know where I can get a 4-jaw scroll chuck, a pen chuck, or a pen mandrel for it? Would like to use it mostly for turning pens so I can keep my big lathe strictly setup for bowls.

Any help greatly appreciated!
