My uncle has an older VEGA lathe and duplicator which he has only used a handful of times and offered it to me for a bottle of scotch! The Lathe is a table top model with step pulleys, and he built an very nice stout Maple table base for it. He doesn’t have any of the documentation on it and can’t find the model info on the lathe either. He got it for trade years back and never set up the duplicator either, so he’s not 100% sure if it even has all the parts for it.
Yes, I did try going to Vega first for help. The Vega website looks like a kid made it for them and only has info on their current models. I’ve called Vega multiple times a few months back and then emailed them out of frustration. Still haven’t gotten a reply. Tried calling them again today and left a voice mail again… i’ll wait and see if they call back but i’m not hopeful at all.
I attached three pictures of the unit to HOPEFULLY find someone that knows:
Thanks for any help you may be able to offer.
