I was told it came from the 1930's. I picked it up off of Craigslist. It is in excellent shape and runs very well. The stand was made by the original owner out of oak. It was a great find for the price. The owner even threw in a complete set of tools with it.

Would like more details NEW
by: Bruce Farrow

I got the Delta "home" shop tools from my mother-in-law after my father-inilaw passed away. She told me the father-in-law purchased tools from a widow in the Dallas area.
Floor mount drill press
7" dia. table saw
jig saw
48" long lathe bed with assorted parts, a gaggle of turning tools Delta #121 thru 128, plus a few Craftsman.
I am missing the 'dead' end. I would like to know the required motor HP,RPM.

It's a excellent machine...
by: Bill Reed

I have the same lathe and it's a great tool. My dad bought it new close to 60 years ago and it still runs fine. Good luck with yours!

Looks almost exactly like mine
by: Dennis Hancock

I just picked one up off craigs list that looks nearly the same. The name on mine says Rockwell Homecraft by Delta MFG. I'd be interested to see what you find out about yours.
