Dennis are you still monitoring this post? I just picked a B4 #2383 that is very dirty but looks functional with exception to motor and associated drive bits. I'm looking for guidance in that area.

I have had a lathe I found in a scrap yard in Seymour Texas for about 12 years. It has a broken base and was in need of tepair. I disassembled it and took inventory of what it needed. Cleaned all the parts and put it in the attic. I just pulled it down to go over again and was trying to find another base. It appears to be one of the most rare models of the Dalton line. It is a Lot-2-No 19. I was planning on using it to neck turn rifle brass. I am using my Summit lathe for this and was hoping to find a more size appropriate lathe for it. It's a neat looking little unit. Just seems to be very very rare and it looks like I should approach with caution.

Hello. I just found your post. As of tomorrow I will be taking possession of a Dalton T-L with a 1924 date and a whole bunch of extras including liv e and dead centers, 3 and 4 jaw chuck, some change gears and in need of re- assembly (its in pieces), a new drive belt, and about a month or two of elb ow grease to remove rust and re-paint. I am a Machinist virgin having only played so far with a Grizzly micro-lathe which has gotten me hooked (I hav e found so far anyone who owns a lathe seems to have 2 or 3 or 4 or... I k now... its a disease) I ordered what literature was available from that UK fellow so we will see if sales brochures are enough info to rebuild this b east. I may be back to ask some (I am sure really really dumb) questions.

It looks like an 8" x 16" so it's not very long. There are no model numbers or other ID tags. Can you tell me what it is?

Hello,
My name is Matt and I live in Illinois. I have recently come across an oppo rtunity to obtain a ?Dalton Six? B-4 Lathe. It is in workin g condition and seems like a pretty sturdy lil Lathe and perfect for my lit tle garage. The guy wants $215.00 for it. Is that a fair price considering it is so hard to get replacement parts?

The real value of these "Garage Lathes" is quite often determined by the attachments and accessories that come with it. 3 jaw chuck? 4 jawed chuck? Taper turning attachment? Tool holders? Boring bar holder? Tail stock drill chuck? Tool bits (to fit)? A boring bar or maybe two? The list goes on and on...

Price doesn't sound too bad even for a fairly stripped machine, so long as it's in good condition. Check ways front ways near headstock for wear. At minimum, you'll want a 3 jaw, 4 jaw, faceplate, drill chuck, lantern tool post, and a live center to do much. With that, you could make a lot of accessories. If you plan to do any threading, you'll want a set of change gears. If not, you could get by with putting a variable speed DC motor on the far end of the lead screw. I modified a friend's Craftsman thus. If it's missing most of the above, be aware that without some serious bargain hunting, they'll likely cost at least double the price of the lathe.
