Number of Pages: 24


This is a reproduction, not a photocopy, of an original Atlas Clausing Model 12700 12″ Pedestal Metal Lathe Instructions and Parts Manual. This manual contains information on installation, lubrication/oiling, maintenance, and adjustments for this Atlas lathe. The manual also covers how to adjust the spindle bearings, make adjustments to the gibs, and properly aligning the lead screw. The explosive view diagram of the parts are very clear and easy to read, and they include descriptions of the parts for the Atlas Clausing 12700 12″ lathe. Please read the contents pictured above for more details.


We also have the Manual of Lathe Operations that would cover this model. I highly recommend this book, because it covers how to properly operate a metal lathe, includes the threading charts, and shows how to use all the attachments Atlas made for this lathe. We carry 6 different versions of this book to cover the different models the one that covers the Atlas Clausing Model 12700 metal lathe is located at this link:

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.

We do more than sell manuals.


We are a father and son team that operate a 5,000 sq/ft metal machine and wood shop. We've had to design our own machines (including CNC), and fixtures for our wood working. We make some of the smallest most precise inlay in the world. We maintain tolerances of 0.0005" in a 12" strip of wood, and we have duck calls with over 1,100 pieces of wood in them.


We've collected various machines and accumulated lots of manuals over the years, and we like to help keep these old machines running. Some of the manuals on this site are from machines in our shop like the Rockwell 10" unisaw, Rockwell uniplane, Walker Turner 1100 16" band saw, etc..
