  • Antique Barnes Lathe

    I have no connection to the seller, just ran across it on Craig's List today. I did find a vintage looking cast iron stand that would go perfect with my recent Craftsman Lathe purchase on Craig's a week or so ago for $ 6.00.

    Here's the stand:

    Hey,
    That is the Atlas shaper table. Fred

      Atlas used the same legs for the lathe, shaper and milling machine, and probably other machines as well. The only difference being the length of the maple planks needed to accomodate the particular machine.

        Ahh, I see. It was listed as a grinder stand. The fellow told me it belonged to his dad who had a bench style grinder bolted to it? I did run across another Craftsman (Atlas) lathe that was for sale (e-bay?) that was sitting atop a stand identical to it with the exception of (wooden planks) being longer. Thanks for the info.
