The centers have to be aligned manually by adjusting screws in the headstock and foot, and then rotating the tailstock into center. This concerns me, because when I go to bore a hole in a chanter or other pipe, it seems like this back and forth motion would cause the bore to wander. My question is: will the Craftsman wood lathe be suitable for boring the deep holes that pipemaking requires, or should I look into getting a wood lathe with the rail configuration of the bed that does not require manual alignment? But at the same time, the misalignment of the wood lathe may be of little consequence for long flexible bits - which will be so bendy that the tailstock motion is unlikely to affect their centering much, if the workpieces are well centered and the holes are started concentrically.
For boring with more rigid, larger diameter bits, the Craftsman bed wobbles might be more of a problem - in which case the Atlas may serve. I think David Quinn also has a small Atlas metal lathe, uses it for drilling & reaming by hand, and it has obviously served him well. There's a small bar on the bottom of the bed that holds the tool rest and tail stock in place. The main reason I want to try and save the Craftsman from demise is because I bought a beautifully constructed steady rest for it that fits perfectly on the bed. Like Bill and John said, I think you will have an easier time on the Atlas (assuming everthing is OK with it). Your Atlas has an adjustable tailstock, so that you can precisely align it with the headstock.
One thing you might try is using the Atlas to start pilot holes that will help guide the more flexible D-bit (or gun) drill.
Once you have used the precision of the Atlas to start a nice straight hole you can mount it on the Crafstmann (with steady rest) and then bore by hand to finish, but you need to make sure that the pilot hole is dead-nuts on center after you move it to the Crafsman lathe, which might prove to be a challenge.
Tim, you might find the following useful when it comes to sharpening tool bits for cutting metal.
Another thing to keep in mind is that as a tool bit cuts steel it work-hardens the metal to some degree.
The Craftsman seems to be working out okay for boring holes, at least for the first half of the workpiece.
The lathe you mentioned is rather like the Myform ML8 wood lathe I used to own, a round bed and the very same problems of getting the tail stock into the same place, there is no easy way to fix this, only going to great lengths of securing the tail stock via precission guides underneath and into a slot on the top of the bed.
This is why a lot of makers etc go for a metal lathe, BUT, even a metal lathe will result in off centre holes on the out end, I have even seen a gun drill come out the side of the wood blank. As long as you set off straight doesn't mean that it will come out true the other side, timber has sometimes a difficult grain or hard resin pocket which will turn even the sharpest gun drill, this is true of Blackwod and other similar high resin timbers. This is why I opt for the much slower older method of hand feeding, the lath is set at the slowest speed and inched along, this prevent the drill from wandering off course, it takes around ten minutes to do each long bore and I get a 98% sucsess rate, its not as if we are making hundreds of parts at a time, the cost of a good gun drill 50 - 60 sterling, one of my bits a dollar at the most.
You can use a metal lathe for seting the pilot hole and use the wood lath for finishing off, but make sure to get the blank re-aligned before you start or the piece will be ruined. If you've been through the Shop Tour at my website, you may be disappointed, because this is virtually identical. Moving to the right, we see the table saw in the haze at the lower left, the Delta 28-280 bandsaw, Delta 22-540 planer, the Makita LS-1030 chopsaw on a TracMaster stand behind it, an old Craftsman jigsaw in the right corner, and the arm of the Craftsman radial arm saw to the right. When I first put my current shop together (my 3rd) I built a similar panel for my power tools.
I built a workbench for my son, a CD rack for my daughter, a sewing cabinet for my wife, and performed lots of other less poignant tasks here.

This lathe is a cast iron 12 x xxxvi lathe sold by Craftsman in the 1930′s craftsman wood lathe 36. However, when the tailstock floats freely on the bed, it moves back and forth, in and out of alignment. After all, the tailstock, with Jacob's chuck and drill bit, has to be unlocked in order to move the bit into the piece of wood you are boring a hole into. This configuration seems better for boring, but the Atlas is too small to accomodate a workpiece and a long D bit or reamer. It's a bit tough to see in the pic, but how do the TS & toolrest maintain their axial locations rotationally on that tube bed? Bill - I had considered what you said, since my D bits are so flexy I thought they might find their way.


I went to start turning a reamer on my Atlas, and I discovered the very top of the tool post isn't secured, so when I go in for a cut, the very top where you attach the tool collet gets pushed out by the workpiece. My flash apparently wasn't functioning quite right, and the pictures turned out much darker than I had hoped. Nothing too exciting here, except there's a good view of the dust collector attachment that replaces the little plastic thingee we all love to hate. I got a section of conveyer years ago, and scavenged the rollers (with bearings; much like roller skate wheels), the axles, and the rails. To the left is the radial arm saw, in the center is a roll-around tool chest, and to the right is my router table.
Sears is constantly having sales of one sort or another, and it's usually possible to get a nice chest and cabinet (upper and lower units, respectively) for a decent price. Harvey's is a traditional gift to SWMBO every Christmas, and one year they had these nice cylindrical boxes that I adapted to hold dowels and wire.
I don't have that many creative moments; most of the things I do are either fixing things or adapting someone else's ideas. This shot is the same orientation as the second one above; the one with the planer and chopsaw. I didn't realize until I had taken the lights down how incredibly well lit it was, which I don't think shows in the pictures. It is the It is vitamin A Hey guys the artisan 113.238160 is a wood lathe made by Emerson Electric. I think things would go smoother if I was able to contain my excitement at the prospect of being able to create and play my own home made chanter and be patient with the process. I started work on the shop within days after moving in, and it evolved over that time to pretty much what is shown here.
On top is the Delta Tenoning jig, and the XR2424 fence is visible, although somewhat distorted by the scanning process. I don't know how they can design such a crappy adaptor as that and such a nice one as this at the same factory.
I think jigsaw work is something like lathe turning; it's a subset of woodworking that stands alone and isn't necessarily a needed skill or tool for the mainstream woodworking that I'm interested in. Then I turned a couple of rollers on my old, homemade lathe, built some pine stands and rigged an attachment for the rollers. The Leigh gets all the press because it focuses on through dovetails, but the Omnijig is designed for production work day in and day out.
But here you can see the Craftsman drill press to the right and the Craftsman tool chest in the middle, which serves as storage for all my drill press accessories. It is incredibly handy for nails, screws, machine parts, scrap brass, shim stock, and lots of other things. This last shot was taken with available light from a couple of windows and a couple of incandescants. Is 225 with 8 craftsman high speed blade chisels a fairish cost 02 19 2010 1 36 necropsy 2.

I was having trouble keeping the workpiece held firmly in the chuck, so I wrapped the workpiece with some emory paper to hold it in place better. What a let down it is to finally get through those 16 inches of chanter bore only to discover your smaller bits went off center at the other end.
That is if you don't count the sawdust, piles of parts, manuals, notes, and cutoffs that adorned most horizontal surfaces. There was also a little image elongation that occurred in the scanning process, but most of it I was able to crop out. We'll begin the tour at an illogical point, although since most of you were never there, it won't matter.
They're clunky, and sometimes they don't sit as square as I'd like, but they're amazingly functional. Several of my Badger Pond friends are serious wood turners, and although they may have had one like this in their past, most of them have moved on to lathes that cost elephant bucks and weigh about as much.
What a treat to be concentrating on some intricate piece of work as SWMBO decides the hall needs vacuuming.
I had another smaller (but heavier) unit in the garage for my wrenches, auto air tools, etc.


I don't recall a manufacturer's name or any model number on it, but it has pigtails with a 110V plug and socket attached. Actually, I think the only white one I have is a set of slotting cutters and they're in a case in the opening below the two top drawers. In it are twist drills, spade bits, Forstner bits, taps, dies, mortise attachment, spanner wrench, drilling fluids, vise, EZ Outs ®, and other useful items. Turns out to be great for lengths over 15" or so, but I found a lot of shorts I'd forgotten about when I took it down. 01 twenty-seven 2013 1995 May Lathes 113.228360 Craftsman XII inch Wood Lathe Owners Manual 36 Slayton 01 XXIII 2013 1970s other 80s Sanders Grinders.
These wood lathes are very sturdy and made in durable materials such as heavy duty cast iron that will stand up to a lot of stress.
I arbitrarily decided to use these five increments, but maybe using more would keep the hole straighter. Note the link belt on the saw, the zero-clearance insert, and the roller bearing stand at the outfeed of the saw.
There's actually a lot of good work that can be done on this, and although I have turned some things I'm proud of, and will do so in the future, turning isn't the singular passion for me that it is for others. He built hanging devices for each one and attached them to a plywood panel which was then affixed to a spot on the wall. As I write this tour in my 2 bedroom condo in Florida, it is with a serious melancholy, for I realize that I had a lot of happy times in that shop.

If you're looking to take on more wood projects and you don't want to be limited by your equipment, then investing in one of these units could definitely be a good idea. I am also finding that the bigger reamers aren't fitting all the way into their place in the bore, so I think I may have to enlarge their parts of the bore a bit. The first picture is taken from the northeast (outside) corner of the el and looks southwest.
You can't tell from the picture, but the 4" dust colllection pipe feeds through the wall below the air regulator to the Jet 1 hp DC behind the wall.
Of course, once I found the Jet switch, like on my table saw, I would probably use that instead, but this one was first. For each tool, he built a small box for the electrical cord and mounted that near the tool holder associated with it.
Anyway, I pawed around in the scrap plywood pile, maybe even bought a sheet, and this is what I cobbled up. All of these lathes are very durable and substantial and you can find units in various sizes.
It has an oil sump for the crankshaft and after using it for an hour or so, deposits a fine film of oil on the lower casting. And what's worse, I didn't have room to put a larger panel up, not to mention the fact that I had no interest in disassembling the original panel and refabricating a larger one.
If I've learned nothing else since being in this condo I've learned that it's nice to have a place to go to work on something that's fully equipped, even if it's just downstairs. To buy one of these would be ideal if you have a dedicated wood shop or perhaps use the garage, since some of these lathes do require a bit of space, however if you do have that, then you would be all set to go. You don't notice it until after several sessions of sawdust generation elsewhere in the shop and then you happen to see the oily coat of sawdust on the jigsaw. Sears is definitely a nice home improvement stores and their Craftsman brand can't be found anywhere else. I did have a problem with the panels climbing over the panel raising part, and that presents a problem with the backcutter. So if you really like Craftsman equipment, then checking out Sears would definitely be the way to go.
I think for the next set of panels I'm going to buy a bit without the back-cutter and then do the back relief with a separate back cutter.
