My father loved woodworking and was very good at it (coming from a machinist background). He has passed away and left quite a bit of equipment in his shop. I have had some offers for some of the stuff, but I have no idea what it is worth. Would anyone be willing to help me out??

A great way to find out what things are worth is to look on your local Craigslist. Some posts will be high and some will be low but it will give you a range.

Looks like an older Delta (maybe?) with a Craftsman bench grinder motor powering it… but it has what looks like a way cool duplicator or cross feed of some sort mounted to it that I don’t believe I’ve ever seen before. Is there a serial number or other badge on the lathe to help identify it? The attachment on the front is most likely a more recent addition. Some more pictures would be cool.

Update: I think I found that duplicator thing… a Delta #46-840. Pretty neat. Here is the manual for it:

I was told that Dad added to the front of the lathe so he could smoothly go back and forth. Not sure what that means, but that is what I was told!!

Have your say...
