Just purchased this from a person that got it from his dad. It had been sitting for some time and starting to get rusty, so the guy decided to sell it. Came with 50 collets, 4 chucks, mounting plate and a bunch of tooling I am still sorting thru. This seems to be the Cataract bench lathe....but I seen a bunch of posts that has me confused as to the model. Does anyone know?

Also, I took the spindle head apart and need to get the 4 cork oil rings and then the front and rear spindle gaskets. Does anyone know where I can get these?
