Thread: Owner's manuals for Craftsman lathe, drill press

  1. #1

    Post Owner's manuals for Craftsman lathe, drill press

    Help!

    As I mentioned in a previous post ('Newbie needs advice!') posted on May 28th of this year, I bought a Sears Craftsman lathe and drill press. I got a lot of good advice on cleaning them (a bucket of WD-40 and some disposable paint brushes), and one guy sent me a copy of the owner's manual for his Craftsman lathe.

    Unfortunately, it's not the manual for my lathe. Based on what I know of Sears' numbering convention, I suspect my lathe is quite a bit older than his:

    Sears Craftsman metal lathes;

    Mine; 101-07403

    His; 101-28990

    In addition, his lathe has a quick-change gear box, which mine does not.

    I'm new at this, but I think my lathe measures 12" x 36".

    So, does anybody have a copy of the owner's manual, or any other documentation, for a Sears Craftsman lathe, #101-07403?

    How about one for a Sears Craftsman drill press, model 103-23130. This is a big bench-top model, made by King-Seeley.

    If you can help me out on either of theese manuals, please reply to the e-mail address, and I'll be happy to pay duplicating and mailing costs.

    This may be old advice, but did you try www.lathes.co.uk ? They have all kinds of manuals.

    Check with the Logan web-site. Logan manufactured a whole bunch of lathes for Sears under the Craftsman name.
    No good deed goes unpunished.

    You're thinking Wards, that was Logan's catalog outlet (labeled as Power King). Sears was Atlas.

    Not sure if it is the same, but I have some of the old craftsman drill press manuals on my web page. They do not match my drill press part number, but are very very close.

    Check out this group.

    Sign up and look under "files" and "links" there are probably 2 dozen owners manuals and parts diagrams. Most likely something will be close to yours as many of these lathes models and years used the same bunch of parts.

    Kind of surprises me that no one thought to mention getting a manual from Clausing, who merged with Atlas (maker of teh Craftsman lathes) years ago.

    Last I heard they were selling 100+ page manuals for the 10/12" Craftsman lathes for $20 plus shipping. They may still be supplying manuals for the 6" lathes too.
