The Sears and Roebuck 10'' Atlas Lathe

Built in 6, 9, 10 and 12-inch versions, the mass-produced and inexpensive Atlas lathes were made by the Atlas Press Company, an organisation based originally in Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA. Because they were built in such huge numbers, the most frequently encountered models today are the "10F", a power-cross feed version of the "10-D", and the useful little backgeared and screwcutting 6-inch machine (3-inch centre height).

I have this lathe for a while now after killing my smaller 1940's Craftsman. The Atlas is a bit bigger and stronger than the Craftsman, accuracy is better too. A very nice piece of machinery to have, without my lathe I would be nowhere and I can fix the Craftsman now...
