Topic tags/keywords: lathe delta 46-612

Hey girls, I picked up a delta 46-612 12” heavy duty wood lathe and it’s missing the cable assembly to adjust the reeves drive. I was hoping someone could help me out with a picture of the assembly so I can cobble something together. Or break into your neighbors shop and take a picture for me. I’d be happy with either.

It would be sweet. I would love you long time.

Thanks bud. Unfortunately, the parts manuals don’t accurately show the cable assembly and how the spring factors in and the heavy duty version has a completely different reeves drive setup. Thanks for taking the time though. Love you long time.

Dang Fridge. Not even any pics on vintagemachinery.org that I saw that showed the Reeves drive. I’d post up over there too and see if you get any bites. Everybody likes your long-time lovin’ ;-)

I did find these 2 pics on google images but not sure if they help ya or not.
