Delta Midi lathe parts - NO Longer Available?
Oct 16th, 2018 at 1:42pm
 
The quill handle on my tailstock is stripped and doesn't grab anymore. Checked on line parts houses and get "Part No Longer Available". I probably could go to Fastenal and match up the original metric bolt, grind the end down and weld some sort of small handle, but this things looks like it could be almost universal?... and would be available on some other overseas tool or under a different model Delta? Your ideas would be most welcome...

Did you contact Delta???

Possible that they have something that would work.

There are two different models of that lathe, T1 & T2.
From looking at the usual suspects like ereplacement parts and tool parts direct, it looks like Delta may have more items still available.

Thank you for your help. According to Delta, the part is now sold through RENOVO Tool...they do have the handle in stock at $6.05. Unfortunately, they want over $10 to ship it. Angry

Pretend that the handle cost $10.00 and the shipping was ONLY $6.05. Sounds quite reasonable.

...or that the handle cost $16.05 and the shipping was FREE!!

Either way, $16.05 is quite minimal to get back to turning.  Roll Eyes
