View Full Version : Clausing 5904 help

02-22-2011, 06:59 PM
I have a friend with an old 5904 and it sounds like his compound slide broke...he has tried to locate a replacement but no luck. Clausing doesn't have that casting anymore and told him there were several changes through the years for it...

I have not seen the actual part since he is several states away but if anyone can help me chase down a part or give me a direction to point him in it would be much appreciated

Thanks Ed

Sounds like he needs to buy a piece of cast iron and start machining a new one.

Try Plaza Machinery?

Seems like they should be about the perfect size for a flat rate box so at least shipping should be cheap. Clausing made those lathes by the thousand, so there should be plenty out there if he wants a used one. I might agree with Dr Stan and go about making a new one if it was me though.
