Evening all,
Well I added another toy to the garage. For the Princely sum of $550.00 I purchased

an Atlas 10 X 36 lathe. It should help in making new tooling for moretoys :wink:

It came with a bunch of extras

There is a tapering attachment but I think it is missing a clamp to the back ways. Does anyone on the list know what might be missing on this other than the clamp? and is there info on acquiring or making what I need.

Congrats Tim!!!! I think I misspelled the title - that should have read - Tim...Steal....Lathe!!!!! :lol:


Man you got way more than $550 worth of accessories alone!!!!!!


You CAN'T go wrong!!!!!!!!


Welcome to the Dark Side :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil:


I see you having LOTS of fun with that!!!!!


Wish I could help more with the Taper attachment question - I do agree it appears you are missing a clamp. Atlas is pretty popular - so I would think you'd be able to locate one pretty easy!



Have Fun !!! Work Safe!!!!

Now I just have to figure out what some of the bits and trinkets are for :roll: . There are several collets but I need to figure out if all the closer parts are there. That will be part of the fun and learning curve :wink:

Hi Tim,

Nice find. There is an Atlas lathe group on Yahoo that will be able to help with the taper attachment question.
