Help, please.

My dad has this 2005 Craftsman lathe

but it is missing the bearing center and spur center. On SMC one contributor said the lathe features a #1 Morse Taper. Will this set get dad where he needs to be?

Here’s the info (manual) for the lathe.

Any insight appreciated, wanting to help dad out with an inop tool he’s had for years. He last turned wood in the 50s and he’d like to once again. Thanks.

Any centers that have a MT1 taper will work, as that lathe has MT1 on both the head and tail stock (as specified in the manual). It also has a standard 1”x8tpi threaded spindle, so other accessories will fit easily. Might want to consider getting a thread tap so you can make your own threaded glueblocks from scrap (see this thread) – best $10 you can spend IMO :)

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks gents, I’ll get those centers on order! And if he moves further and the thread tap make sense, we’ll get that too.
