I recently acquired a Delta 46-250 Midi Lathe and am enjoying tinkering with it. That said, I have a few basic questions about the machine and am searching for an owner’s manual—admittedly, I like to read manuals. I’ve searched pretty thoroughly and have found multiple parts lists, parts dealers and a manual in French, but not what I need. Is there someone out there who can provide some direction, a scanned copy or an old copy? I’d pay for the copies and shipping. Thanks.

Hello Jose;

Here is a great reference WEB Site for every manual you have EVER wanted! I looked up your model number you noted yet it is not listed. Maybe it’s an older model? Anyway, you can sin-up (no cost) and ask the membership at large for o copy … I’ve seen others be very successful.

There are hundreds of manual for anything you can think of requireing one.

Here it is:

I hope this link comes through properly

I checked the Delta/Porter Cable/black and Decker/Dewalt Service website, along with the parts list, they have the french and english instruction manuals.

If that link didn’t work, go to and do a search by model number.

If you’re still having problems, PM me your email and I’ll send you the PDF.

Thanks. I’ll take a look and if I can ever return the favor don’t hesitate to ask.

Have your say...
