Selling a Craftsman, made my Atlas metal Lathe model 618. This lathe was originally a Armature Lathe. I am the fourth owner, second owner to set the lathe up for use. The original manual has a print date of 1967. The cross slide screw on these lathes have very small surfaces for pushing into a turning and pulling away. The cross slide screws on these lathes are not robust. I replaced the Acme 3/8 x 10tpi cross-slide screw with a 3/8 60degree 20 tpi, adding a forward thrust bearing and a return bearing alone with a dial (20 turns per inch with .001 markers). It uses a Aloris style 0XA-0 tool post with 5 tool holders (Diamond tool, cutoff blade, dial Indicator, and two extra) and three Drill Chucks (I did a run-out on these chucks and I cannot afford to buy anything as accurate as these chucks). The head-stock is square and the tail stock doesn't need adjusting and shimming to align every time you use it. I finished the lathe several years ago, have not wanted to depart with it until now, I need the room. It'd be a great asset to any serious shop... I've cut mild steel, stainless, brass, delrin, gray iron and occasional bolt stock with carbide tools.
