Usual disclaimers. There are undoubtedly a host of other used machinery dealers who could help you out, but I know these three have good reputations.

I had a hard time finding parts for my Sheldon 11-1/4" lathe until I found that many were still available (for a price) from the manufacturer! Sheldon was purchased by National Acme, who was very good at supplying parts which were otherwise unavailable. They did not have everything, however. They did not have any of the tailstock castings, but had all of the spindle parts, etc. I last dealt with them about three years ago. Then National Acme was purchased by DeVlieg Bullard Services Group, (815) 282-4100, in Chicago. In August of 1998, DeV-B closed National Acme's parts manufacturing facility, and whatever parts are no longer in stock are outsourced by DeV-B an a cost!!!! DeV-B is a going concern and may have a website. National Acme used to machine, to Sheldon specs, any part you needed, and kept a small stock of spares. Good luck!! Otherwise try the used eqpt dealers above.
