    Any Machinist In Here?

    Got a craftsman/atlas commercial 101.

    In almost perfect condition at an estate sale.

    I have a question about the taper attachment. I think I’m missing pieces.

    I also want a quick tool post, but I don’t know much about this stuff.

    The lathe will only be used for machine-transmission reaction plates and pumps.

    Just a little background and introduction, l was a Tool and Die Maker apprentice in the UK in 1967.

    I worked as a machinist on a US Government contract from 1973 to 1977. I am retired and haven’t done any machinist work in the last 45 years.

    Congratulations on your lathe look like you have lots of attachments and are in great shape.

    Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with the Atlas but have used several other makes and models. I did a little check on the internet and found this video (part #1 of 2) that may help answer your question on the taper attachment.



    Also found this photo of the Atlas taper attachment and parts on eBay.

    Oh wow.

    Thanks!

    I saw that listing on eBay; I’m missing the middle crossbar.

    I’ll probably never cut a taper, but it would be nice to have a complete kit just in case.

    From what I’ve read, this was the last of the best lathes produced by atlas/craftsmen, but it was also a short production run for this model.

    I have been searching for an excellent, decent, priced south bend for a while.

    I don’t think that combination exists, LOL.

    This was just too good of a deal to pass up.

    No nicks or wear on the bed it has a coolant/cutting oil pump setup, and it’s wired for single phase 220.

    The only thing worn on it is the belts.

    They only wanted $500 for it.

    Needless to say, you got one heck of a great deal!

    If you ever decide to sell it, let me know, and I will drive down and pick it up.

    I may want to rethink that with the current fuel price.
