      I'd guess that neither of these parts are available from the
      manuafacturer anymore and that used parts will be your most likely
      source. Both are probably going to be pretty hard to find. Arbors
      on eBay seem to go for $150-200. Spacers can probably be bought off
      the shelf from the standard tool suppliers and you should be able to
      make up a draw bar pretty easily.

      Clausing supplies some Atlas parts (Atlas & Clausing merged) so you
      might try them:

      www.clausing-industrial.com

      and click on the service link to get contact info. They've been
      known to supply blueprints for parts that are no longer
      manufactured, so you might try asking for those. They'll sell you a
      manual for $5 or $10, too.

      There are also used tool dealers that tend to specialise in the
      smaller home-shop type tools, like Atlas. Dave Sobel and Plaza
      Machinery come to mind, but I don't have contact info for them handy.

          arbors can be shop made .........doug king ,visiting me last summer from
          canada decided i neded a 1 1/4 B&S 9 arbor & proceeded to turn one out on my
          1895 reed 14x44, in abt 2 hours,sans spacers ( went at a totally strange
          machine ,like he had learned on it).....put it in spindle & indicated 10 in
          out & the needle didnt move .....redid the setup 2x more before i beleived it
          ..there had to be good fortune there , BUT doug is SOME kind of
          machinist!!!!!!...took me longer to make the spacers! this lathe has 3 fixed
          pulley feeds ,.007 being the least..he ground & set the bit so there was no
          sign of concentric rings., #220 cloth was all that was necessary .to
          finish.....thinking abt it , dont see why u cdnt take a blank #2 morse taper
          ,shrink a oversize bar on ,put between centers & turn down to 1in (7/8) &
          thread end 1x 12 ...shud be dead on .......best wishes

            There is another Yahoo group, Chris,

            Atlasshaperandmillingmachineusersgroup,

            which you might want to check out. They have a number of photos of
            the mills posted as well as copies of some "How-to" articles about
            techniques. Their archives include a series of emails detailing the
            creation of arbors from Morse Taper 2 drill shanks; the first of
            which appears to be message 178.

            And be sure to check your countryman's site

            http://www.lathes.co.uk/ specifically

            http://www.lathes.co.uk/atlasmiller/index.html

            and thirdly, try http://www.owwm.com/

            Charles

            P.S. Thanks for the center height information on the mill. Sounds
            like a good substitute for a 10" - 12" lathe for turning live steam
            locomotive drivers.

              Further to Mike's comments, the overarm itself, on my Atlas MFB hor mill
              (serial 006417) is a piece of shaft 1.5 inch nominal diameter (1.499 actual)
              by 16 inches long, so it is easy to replace. I got one here in Dartmouth
              Nova Scotia last week for $23 Canadian at Metals Supermarket. The overarm
              and the arbor are 2.875 inches center to center and the arbor is .625 inch
              dia, so the arbor support should not be too difficult to make.

                  Have no idea, but there is a Swiss of French mother tongue living in the
                  German part of Switzerland.

                  Had an Atlas 10F-42. Found it a bit too light. Here they have no value as
                  not known and in inches. Sold it and bought a DIXI (competition to Schaublin
                  102) without screw feed but high precision. Have now found my dream of a
                  long time, a Myford Super 7 which I will fetch in June/July as I have to
                  make room in the meantime!!!!

                    is another 2 more Atlas lathes in running order but how many more are there
                    in the UK still working. Before 1990 they was still being sold over here by
                    Acorn lathes and we have still, an agent for parts new and second-hand (ex
                    Acorn) Mr Kern in Ascot. There must be many still around but it seems that
                    these owners are not into computers or they are not being used very often.

                    Strange - that is exactly why I bought mine, to make bits for my motorbike - and as my background is 30+ years as a computer programmer, I go off to my 3 hour
                    Message 9 of 22 , Mar 2, 2003
                      Strange - that is exactly why I bought mine, to make bits for my motorbike
                      - and as my background is 30+ years as a computer programmer, I go off to
                      my 3 hour evening class every Thursday. I got a Sphere (Atlas 10inch clone)
                      because it was that must bigger that the popular (read expensive) Myford ML7.

                      As I am not into screw making (I use the lathe with taps and dies) the fact
                      that it is not metric doesn't worry me (although I am planning to try
                      making a 5/16 BSF bolt today if I get the time)

                      I am restoring a Suzuki which seems to be festooned with special bolts -
                      stepped, collared etc, which I will be making (and why I bought it).
                      However now I have got into it, I can see all sorts of other uses too - the
                      first thing I mad was a hitch pin for the trailer on my 1950's Mayfield 2
                      wheel agricultural tractor.

                      I was originally going to by an old Dummond being advertised in the Model
                      Engineering site http://easyweb.easynet.co.uk/~chrish/homepage.htm . The
                      seller lived in Brighton which is only about 40 miles from me. When I
                      expressed great interest and would like to come and see it running, he
                      stopped emailing me. I notice he is still advertising it 3 months on .....
                      makes you wonder eh?

                          Did Ascot sell the milling machine under licence too?

                              As for selling the Milling machines I'm not sure but they may have done and
                              Mike Kurn will know as he was then in charge of all the spares at Acorns and
                              after the take over and the Atlas line of produces dropped . He purchase
                              all the parts still in the stores and since then he buys used machines and
                              parts as well as sell new and used parts
                              Ernest.

                                      Thank you Peter,
                                      I admit to being a bit lazy here. If I could get hold of the original bits
                                      fine, but if not, your measurements will help if I come around to having to
                                      make them myself. At this stage I am an enthusiastic novice so a number of
                                      attempts is the norm but not a problem.
