    FOR SALE WOODLATHE

    SOLD

    Delta/Rockwell Model: 46-140
    The name plate says "Rockwell," however, people seem to refer to it as Delta Rockwell.

    Lathe made in Canada
    Motor made in USA

    Swing: 15in x 4in knock-out for turning bowls. 10 inch over the ways.

    Maximum spindle length: Original data I had said 36 in. I get 35.5 in
    Condition: Excellent
    Lathe size: The lathe is a shorter unit with an extension. I did not realize this until I owned it for many months. The extension fits like it was cast there.

    Accessories included:
    ****Steel table with heavy laminate top.
    **** I added on an extension that will hold 18 wood turning tools (Tools not included).
    ****I made a simple wood tool that makes changing belts to change speeds simple and very easy.
    ****I made tool to make changing drive accessories easy
    ****Four prong center
    ****Three inch cast iron faceplate
    ****Tail center (cup with point)
    ****I added a switch. Poke your finger through a small hole to turn on. Hit paddle with anything (hand, knee, lathe tool) to turn off. See the photo.
    ****I added six-compartment storage area under the lathe.
    ****I added an open box (that can sit on the rails) for “stuff” used while turning.

    I purchased this from Dan Gonzales for $250. I have made improvements. Price $250.

    I have some ShopSmith turning tools that the buyer can have if he/she wants them.

    I have a DVD that shows a simple, inexpensive way to make the lathe variable speed. Unfortunately I did not get this until I had purchased a new lathe.

    Hi guys,

    Nothing spectacular. Delta 46-460. Approximately the same thing I had except variable speed and a slower speed range.

    I really don't like to change belts to change speeds...spoiled aren't I? So I spent a bunch of money. So, if I had seen this simple way to fix mine for variable speed, I would not have spent the $$ and would not have two lathes. It is interesting; the man turned his lathe into variable speed for a few bucks and two or three hours of labor. My guess on cost is $25.00 to $30.00.

    Yes, I like my new lathe. No, I would not have purchased a new lathe if I had seen the CD.

    Yes, the lathe that Dan sold me was a good deal. It is a great lathe...far better than lathes costing twice what I paid Dan.

    Time to shut up Bradley,

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    That is indeed a great deal on a fine lathe. Somebody should grab it up.

    I wouldnt mind having it but I think I need to learn the basics of woodworking before I buy a lathe. I am just now making a deal on a plane or two. A lathe would be awesome though.

    Gees, Larry, you are oh so close to slipping over the line!

    What do you say, folks? Think we can find a way to make this happen?
