just curious if any of you out there have parts available? theres a few odd things im needing for my 700 wards been watching ebay but don't feel like getting raped. some of those sellers have real high hopes that a sucker comes along...they must have to sit on this stuff for quite awhile.

some things im looking for..
tailstock wipers... I have the left ones need the rights (tailstock end of carriage)
threading dial
tailstock... (mines seen better days, handle/lock has been butchered and the quill has hammer marks and lots of wear)
3 jaw chuck.. thinking im probably better to buy new instead of a 1/2 worn out one?
steady rest... I sometimes make long parts (16+ ") out of 1.5 + material.. hard to face or center drill at that length
im sure theres more... let me know what you have if anything as I know some of you have bought parts machines to rebuild your own lathes

For a three jaw chuck I wouldn't even bother with an old used one. All too often they are beat up and badly worn. For not too much more money you can get a brand new one if you don't mind buying Chinese imports.

Logan sells felts for the carriage.

Have you looked at eBay for the steady rest and tailstock?

I agree with Terry: there's no way to evaluate chuck condition on eBay, and a lot of the old chucks are just worn out.
Have a look at Shars chucks, or if the budget allows it, Bison makes nice chucks.

the felt and the holders are missing from the tail end of my carriage....someone lost them at some point I guess... ones I can buy from logan or evil bay are the whole set.... big money when you only need 2 pieces of tin... and yes I think I mentioned I wouldn't want to look at someone elses old used up chuck. I got enough old beat up iron here ;p

I purchased one of the holders from Logan: no need to buy all of them. The felts came as a set. By the way, the holders are now injection molded plastic, but the one I got works just fine.

I just called Logan and ordered one with some other stuff. So far the plastic part seems fine.

It looks like I promised to post a pic of the plastic felt holder and forgot. So, here it is... Better late than never, I guess.

Dang, you got all fancy on the carriage lock and threading ..... thingy. Uh, what’s up with the threading thingy? Not being critical, just don’t get what it is.

Bed looks great, by the way.

Plastic felt holders look ok, don’t take too much abuse and really have a pretty simple job, just hold the felt in place.

May I suggest if your buying a new chuck , do your self a favor and buy the six jaw chuck . I guarantee you will love it over any three jaw. I think I saw a tailstock on craigslist in the tri states around me . If I Ck again and find the collection of parts ill post it . I have a logan 11" that I don't think ill ever sell I've to much invested in it. Someone started printing the thread gage for LATHES saw that recently also.

The thingy is a stop for my carriage "DRO". Not the greatest solution, but the long spacer is needed because the carriage lock handle
has to clear it, and if I use a taller handle, it interferes with my compound when it's clocked around in that direction.

I used my carriage stop to support the indicator by making a threaded square head bolt. If I need it as a carriage stop, I just turn the
bolt around.
