Just purchased a used/estate CM 12x36 lathe in decent looking condition. It was powered when I checked it out, all functions worked, long. and cross feed, threading etc., came with 3 jaw, 4 jaw, face plate, variety of drill chucks and centers and small quick change tool post, not an Aloris but chinese similar, probably a "A" size.
Just curious as HF no longer stocks these, should I have issues in the future what others might have the same parts.
Thanks

It is a common lathe that was built in China. Many companies sold/sell them. Most likely came from the same factory and they just put whatever name on it that ordered it. I wouldnt worry to much about it.

Thanks, by viewing the photos of the machines and downloading both operating manuals it appears they it and the Grizzly G4003 are virtually identical.
