Atlas Metal Lathe #618
This is a nice table top Atlas Metal Lathe model #618. The drive motor is a dual voltage Century brand 1/3 Hp. ball bearing motor, which has thermal protection. It is currently wired for 110 voltage. The motor runs fine.The power cord shown in the picture will be replaced with a grounded cord, before the lathe is shipped. The lathe is in good condition with minimal amount of wear for its age. The carriage assembly does have some wear, but does not seem to affect the overall operation of the lathe to any great extent. I made the tapered punch which is shown in the picture, using the automatic carriage feed. This lathe can be used for thread cutting applications. The ways are in good condition, except for the two indentions seen in the picture, but this does not effect the operation of the machine. The tail piece is in good condition and comes with a removal dead center and also comes with a keyless drill chuck. A set of gears which can be used for thread cutting is included with the lathe, see picture. There is also a faceplate and a homemade lathe dog included, as seen in the picture. A right angle and left angle tool holder is also included. I believe anyone would be happy owning this table top lathe. The custom table is included in the auction. The table is 37" long by 20 1/2" " wide and is 37 and 1/4" tall. The frame of the table is made with angle iron with a wooden top. The lathe is sitting in a sheet metal tray which catches shavings and any cutting fluids. I will try to keep shipping costs as low as possible. If you have any questions please email.
