I can't help with any actual Smithy parts but I would try Graingers for an equivalent motor. If you can match dimensions and ratings for everything except for the mounting bolt pattern, check whether it would be practical to drill and tap for new mounting holes.

On the tailstock, if you cannot locate an original, look around for one for one for another machine that is about the same size and make either a spacer (riser) block or a new base.

Thanks for the advice , looking at the Midas it seems like a 12 inch might work. If some one could measure the distance between the ways mine measures 6-1/8 " if I remember correctly

Well I've tried to get s tail stock from smithy , but the guy that returned my call from the tech dept said they no longer support my machine , 2003 model wtf , anyway he would not even tell if a tailstock for s 1220 Midas will fit, I can order one for 235.00 and find out but thats not how I like to gamble.anyone know if the midas will work on the CB 1239?

Unfortunately, I have no idea. But check what they claimed for swing over bed for the two models. If the two numbers are exactly the same, then maybe the later tailstock will fit. If they aren't the same, then the new tailstock won't work on your machine.

Both are critical. For example, Atlas used the same basic bed dimensions for the 10" and early 12" So either tailstock will fit either bed. But the wrong one won't work because it will be 1.000" either too high or too low.
