I have a Craftsman Lathe Model 351.217150 that I bought from my brother last May. He owned it for 10 years but never used it for various reasons. I’ve been using it pretty steadily for about 4-5 hours a day since I brought it home learning to turn bowls. A few days ago the fan that cools the motor broke up. The cause was the shaft that the two bearings ran out wore out enough so the fan rubbed against the housing and finally failed. Anyone know someone who is parting out their lathe? I’ve been looking for a fan with similar dimensions with no luck.
