    I have a 15 inch craftsman professional lathe I purchased around 20 years ago. It's really a great machine and I have done a lot with it. It had an optional tool rest set up for turning larger outboard bowls (the head turns and locks 90 degrees). The online parts lists etc all say these parts are <no longer available> however I wanted to see if anyone may have this outboard tool rest kit and not need or use it.

    Try www.ereplacementparts.com to see what they have. Craftsman contracts with manufacturers and changes a few parts so they won't interchange. You are forced to go to Sears for a part. Once a Craftsman part is gone, it is gone forever. BTW, used to have Craftsman contractors as customers.
    Good luck in your quest!

    Glad you had good luck finding your part and with the Craftsman lathe. Our club was donated a Craftsman lathe when we first started the club. It was one of the worst lathes I've ever worked on. Nothing moved freely or locked down firmly and it was noisy.

    This lathe is rock solid and not at all noisy

    That looks like the one shown in the manual - I would love to get it but not sure how - maybe it would fit in a one price USPS large box that would ship for around $20 ? How much are you asking for it ?

    You are a good man! That’s why I love woodturning, the people are always helpful, and it’s not a big group of secretive people.
