Default Delta (Type 1) LA 200 Lathe

Hi, Some folks say that one company may build lathes for six different vendors. I own a Delta (Type 1) LA 200 Lathe and need a tail stock. Are there any other brand names that are interchangeable with the LA 200 Lathe? Thanks for your assistance.

Delta's higher end tools may be unique to them. The lower end ones are Taiwanese. A cousin bought their 13" planer and it was identical to a King Canada I have for all practical purposes and my King uses the same gear box, motor, bed, head, and columns as several others. I'm not familiar with that model you have but I would suggest that you look at Jet and Star if they are still around. Possibly Grizzly too as I thing they may come fro the same factory or factories as King, Jet, and some others. If another one looks really similar then it probably is a clone. It also might not be that critical. If the tailstock is made for a lathe with a given swing diameter then the only other factor that matters is the gap between the rails.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I just found this ad which has been deleted but it says that the extension fits a Rikon so that might be another place to look.

Delta LA200 Shopmaster 10" MIDI Lathe - tools - by owner - sale

I have a LA200 Delta midi lathe with bed extension making it a 10" x 36". I am willing to sell this lathe for $200 w/o the extension as it fits right on my Rikon mini. Without the extension it is the standard Delta 10"x14.5" lathe.
