45803Re: [atlas_craftsman] Manuals
- Feb 1, 2007When your looking at a manual check which edition it is to find out if
it's the correct version for your lathe.
I have a 29th edition which was printed in 1975. According to the dates
listed in this edition, a new edition was printed almost every year
starting in 1938. The years they were not printed include: '53, '56,
'58, '59, '62, '64, '66, '69, '72. I'm not sure what the last edition
was. I think they stopped making the lathes in the early 80's.
I'm sure there's not enough cash in it for Clausing to bother, but it
would be really cool if they would print various editions so a person
could buy the manual best suited to their lathes model and vintage. I'd
also love to get new copies of the supplemental manuals and the wall charts.
