Sears / craftsman "dunlap" 6X18 benchtop lathe 109.0702
SEARS / CRAFTSMAN "DUNLAP" 6" x 18" BENCHTOP LATHE # 109.0702
The following information was found on the
www.lathes.co.uk Website. . . . .
"The new-for-1941-version of the AA109 6" x 18" marketed by Sears at first carried the name "Dunlap", another brand name used for the company's less-expensive models.
By now the lathe had begun to grow up and also been given the contemporary "streamline" treatment and, for the fist time, was fitted with an apron that carried a leadscrew half-nut the operating lever for which snapped into position through the operation of a spring-loaded ball detent.
Although this mechanism gave a positive action, there was no compensating pad on top of the leadscrew to absorb the upward thrust. The new lathe was a model of mechanical simplicity and economical production with the saddle, apron and the cross-feed screw end bracket cast as one piece - as illustrated lower down the page.
The lathe was initially marketed as just a single model with a capacity between centres of 18 inches (identification numbers included 109.07801 and 109.0702 with a hand-cranked leadscrew to drive the carriage (but no screwcutting)"
Lot includes Bed Ways, Carriage, Headstock, #1 Morse Taper Tailstock / Center, Power Companion 3" / 4-Jaw Lathe Chuck, and other accessories shown in photos. Please Note: Some of the smaller accessories may not actually accommodate the 109.0702 Lathe.
We received these parts along with the Lathe and are uncertain wether or not they go with the machine. . . . .You may wish to check out the
