Record CL1 lathe main spindle and bearings
« on: June 22, 2020, 09:05:43 PM »
Hi all,
I hope someone can help me, I'd really appriciate it.
I have the Record CL 1 36 x 15 lathe (The blue one before Record Power green ones) and require a new main spindle as the thread is very damaged (3/4 x 16), and also a 4 prong centre is wedged in.
Does anyone know where I could possible purchase one? I'm OK wit barings and a new belt as they seem readily available from a lot of places. The lathe seems very solid, so really want to keep it.
I've removed the spindle and bearings, which was straight forward enough. Now to hopefully find a replacement spindle.

Many thanks,

Richard

I've got to ask the obvious question, have you contacted Record, they may still hold or offer a spares availability.
