Here is an image from a reader that nicely rebuilt and restored this Atlas 10 inch metal lathe model V42 with serial number 05140. This is a older version of the Atlas 10 inch lathe, because it has babbit bronze bushings and doesn’t have a pull knob to engage the power cross feed on the apron. We actually used to have a similar model in our shop.

This manual does cover the basics. It explains lubrication, and labels the different controls of the lathe. The reader said that he wanted more information about the operation of the lathe. He’s not the only person that has asked us about this, and that is why we carry the Manual of Lathe Operations and Machinist Tables books, which is full of almost everything you would want to know to get started, plus it contains information on the gear and machinist tables for threading.
