I finally got my 10" Atlas lathe running this weekend, it's only taken me a year to do it! Well after getting it going I've found some broken and missing parts. Does anyone know where to get parts for these machines? I'd kind of like to get new parts if I can. I guess if all else fails I can check on Ebay. Thanks for your help. Tim

Check with Atlas Press Co., or Sears, Roebuck and Co. Sears used to sell some of Atlas' products under the Craftsman label.

........A buddy (this was several years ago) was getting a 6" Atlas up and running and needed some parts. He told me that Sears still inventoried ALL the parts for these. However he said there was another outfit which had them and was only half the price. I sure wish I could recall who that was!

Best,

Just an update for those interested. I've found another number for parts (supposedly). It's (574) 533-0371, I got this # from someone on the yahoo atlas group. I'm going to try to call tomorrow and see if I can find out any info.

The aforementioned phone number (574-533-0371) is for Clausing service center in Goshen, Indiana. The only way to order from them is by phone. I've been using them for a couple of months now and have been quite happy with their service. Sometimes the prices send me back to FleaBay, but such is the way when refurbishing history. I had been desperately watching FleaBay for some split nuts, watching literally for months while prices at end of auction would usually go $50-60 dollars a set for " NOS " ones. After doing some research I found out about these guys and called. Brand new sets from Clausing sre $31.00 and change. The price list and printed parts diagrams that were ending at $10-15.00 are $5.00 from them. Just last week I bought 3 new bronze bushings for the small gear and drive pulley on the spindle shaft for $7.21 each. (A world of difference in smoothness.) I have been amazed at the friendliness and product knowledge I've experienced with them. Maybe as a parts person I know the right way to ask the questions? Who knows.
Some other deals on FleaBay were had by punching CRAFTSMAN LATHE on the search screen, seems like some folks don't know to include the word "ATLAS" in their description. Others don't know to look under Craftsman, so sometimes you can get a better deal that way.
I've check out SEARS parts store for some of the parts for lathes but have found that their prices are higher since they must be using Clausing as a supplier.
