Topic tags/keywords: question lathe resource turning

I have bent the spindle of my old craftsman lathe model no 351.317170. As it isn’t being supported by ereplacement parts or sears parts direct, I thought I would see if anyone here has one they would be willing to part out, or might point me to someone who does. Thanks for any help you can give.

You would most likely find it on the auction site.

Thank you. I have been looking on eBay and craigslist as well as local auction sites with no success. Can you point me to any other auction services that I may have overlooked?

Afraid mine may or may not be what you are looking for..is it the “motor end? Been parting out this old lathe, motor was shot.

bandit571,
Yes, I’m looking for the headstock spindle. But looking at your pic, I think that’s a different model. Hard to tell from the picture. But maybe it’s the same spindle? If you want to pull it out and take some measurements and send me a message with them, I’d definitely be interested in working out a price if it actually would fit, assuming it’s not just as bent as my old one! ;)

Give me a couple days….a bit busy at the moment. Will try to yank it out….never acted like it was bent, though…
