This is a reproduction, not a photocopy, of an original Delta-Milwaukee 12″ Wood Lathe 46-307 or 1460 Instructions and Parts Manual. We’ve combined two different parts manuals. One older cross sectional view diagram from the 40’s that shows the older more open tailstock, and one with exploded view diagrams from the 60’s with a more solid tailstock.
We’ve also included the document that Delta provided to modify the older tailstock to prevent jamming from misalignment. This manual contains information on operating instructions, using the indexing head, proper motor selection and installation, and how to change the speeds for a counter-shaft unit accessory.
I also highly recommend the “DELTA Getting the Most Out of Your Lathe Manual“, which we carry. It covers a lot of different set ups and unique uses for these lathes.
I have collected this information for many years and have found the information they contain to be priceless in using and setting up the machines properly. I believe this manual will be a valuable resource of knowledge that will provide a lot of helpful information that is often hard to find. My manuals are not photocopies. I maintain a high standard of quality in my reproductions. Most of the manuals I reproduce look better than their originals. I have professionally digitally edited every page, and removed stains, wrinkles and handwriting. All of the manuals are printed on thick white paper to withstand shop wear and tear.
