I have a Delta 46-460 lathe. Communicating with the folks at Delta, I have a Type # 1 manufactured in December 2010.

The on/off switch and reverse switch are showing how much use they have had over the last 12 years and need to be replaced. From what I've been able to locate so far, both these items are listed as obsolete. I've been able to locate these switches, but only for Type # 2 (later manufacture) lathes. Fuzzy online images seem to indicate that the Type # 2 switches are not direct replacement parts for a Type # 1 lathe.

Does anyone have a source for early Type # 1 parts? Or can someone clarify whether the switches are interchangeable?

Thank you.

Matthew

Much appreciated. I was able to purchase the on/off switch.

After doing some looking, I ran across an old Forum thread talking about Type 1 and Type 2 lathes. One person posted that a Type 1 machine can be retrofitted with a Type 2 switch. Does anyone know if this is true?
