Searching for "Atlas" 6 inch lathe parts for a table-top machine of about 35 years of age. Obtaining the needed parts is essential to my defeating the "Good Ole Boy", "Military-industrial complex", "Profit-Motivated" system. Currently, I have multiple projects, ideas going which require the use of this equipment to develop. Would appreciate any and all help y'all could render to get me in operation...

Welcome Roy, not sure what you need but the Atlas lathe was sold with the Craftsman logo for awhile so don''t limit yourself to just a search for Atlas when your looking about I have had good luck with watch lathe parts on ebay.

permaculture is largely about replacing oil with people. And one tiny ad:
Heat your home with the twigs that naturally fall of the trees in your yard
