Topic tags/keywords: lathe turning question

I found this at an estate sale in mid-Kansas. Can anyone help me find some new chucks or maybe a face plate to mount on this guy? Any help would be outstanding.

I think you’re going to be out of luck in finding a chuck for that. If you know a machinist, you could get an adapter made to fit any chuck.
If you do get a chuck, get a good one that will fit the last lathe you purchase…....... Jerry (in Tucson)

Earlier this year someone else had the same question and I think eventually found one for sale, so you might search this website and see if you can find it.

Also, you probably already know this but that type of lathe needs to be oiled to lubricate the spindle.

If you are going to use that lathe, build a guard for that belt drive before it bites you.
