I need to find a parts manual for a Sheldon EXL-56-p lathe. I seem to have a bearingcover housing missing on the main spindle shaft on the back side of the head oposite of the chuck. Any help on either item would be greatly appreciated. If I even had a picture of the part I could build one . Thanks for your help. George

join the sheldon yahoo group. in that group you will find a file that shows the dimensions of the end caps.

New parts are available through Bourn & Koch, made to order. Of course "Made to order" means hugely expensive.

I bought a "Manual" from B&K, it was $90ish and was pretty much a parts list. Needless to say I was not happy.

There are some pretty good sheldon and US Army documents at the yahoo group as well.
