    Broke a Delta Lathe part How get replacement

    The tail stock tightening mechanism for my 46-460 Delta lathe broke in the midst of making holiday presents. What is the fastest, easiest way to get a replacement?

    Thanks and Enjoy,
    JimB

    Which part broke? Regardless, I think your best bet will be to contact Delta's Customer Service folks and get the part from them.

    You can get the part number from this:

    +1^ since Delta is now known for the worst customer service on the planet, second only to PSI...maybe. eBay may also be a good choice.

    I agree with e-replacement parts. I've ordered several parts from them over the years and never been disappointed. Fact I have parts for my router on their way. Should arrive tomorrow.

    Thanks to all of you. However it looks like the season of gift giving may be moved up to Valentine's Day this year. (Translation: Shipping in 17 to 23 days.)

    Enjoy,

    Maybe...Maybe not. Every time EReplacementParts has given me an estimated ship date, they've managed to get the part to me in about half that estimate. Hopefully your experience will be similar.

    Is that 17 to 23 days from Delta or ereplacements?
