  • Need some help identifying a scrap yard find?

    I was at the scrap yard last week and found a small steady rest. I'm not sure what it fits but I think it’s from an Atlas or Craftsman 12" lathe. It has a flat bottom base and measures about 6" from the base to the center. It also has a casting number "CBL 446" on it. Does anyone have a parts list that would reference that casting number to a specific lathe? It has been bead blasted and cleaned up real nice. I have no use for this and would like to ebay it, so any info would help me list it. I just couldn't let it rot in the scrap yard.

    That does not sound like aa Atlas part number. The listings I have do not show a steady rest, a photo would be helpful.

    The Atlas steady rest is one piece, not hinged, with an open front and sliding fingers if that helps.

      Atlas rests....

      I'll second what JC says about the Atlas steady rests....South Bends are hinged.
