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
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.
****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.
