It sounds like you should be asking for a lathe that's suffered an
accident to the ways, so you can strip it for parts.
Question: if someone liked your lathe little enough to strip it, why do
you have confidence that it'll be a nice machine when you're done?
Have you checked with Clausing Service Center?
Call: 1-(574)-533-0371 and be prepared with the serial number
and model number of the lathe. They will sell you a photocopied manual
appropriate to your machine, and send along a list of parts still in
stock with prices.
However, if you need that much, you may be facing a pretty steep
bill. It all depends on how important that machine is to you.
Of course, you *could* spend a few years haunting eBay and find
Some other parts from earlier/later machines may fit -- in
particular the compound. I've got a spare compound for my 5418 (large
enough spindle hole to allow a 5C collet closer to work), and the spare
has smaller dials, so I think that it was for an earlier machine with
smaller spindle bore.
