If anybody knows of a Jet, Grizzly, or other headstock reeves pulley that will fit a type-2, I'd appreciate hearing about it.

Eric, have a Delta 46-700 12” x 36” lathe and could never get reeve drive repaired. So took it to a local machine-welding shop and had them remove my reeves drive. Installed a pulley on headstock spindle, & belt, relocated the motor to a bracket that swiveled in and out. Moved the belt over spindle & motor pullies to change speeds. Total cost about $170. That lathe served me well for over ten years once modified.

could not re-install plastic headstock cover, and could not rotate the headstock anymore but that was okay with me.

It may cost me a little more...

A LITTLE more??????? Bahahahahaha! Nobody else's lack of planning constitutes an emergency on my part

If you plan to make pens on something that spins, you should plan to replace expendables, now and again

on a side note, my Jet 1014 VSI goes through so many switches, I was able to get Home Depot to keep that switch in stock for me. Same switch as the Jet OEM, SPST with spade lugs. HD price $1.97, Meyer (Jet Parts Distributor) $6.95 plus about that much in shipping.

The local auto supply store gets my business for Jet lathe belts, too.

Wow! I'm soooo sorry that the Delta, in particular, the 460 lathe is having sooo many problems with the on/off/variable speed switch! I have several other Delta tools that I enjoy and use every day and wonder how many problems I'll have replacing necessary parts in the future.... Looks like one more great shop product that has gone the wayside. :>( For a weekend warrior, this is a big issue as I and I'm sure MANY others have these products in our garages and shops and have hoped they would last forever or at least have parts available when they break down... Wish we ALL had an easy solution...
