You could try oven cleaner, or lye, to start.

To all Dalton owners and people interested in Dalton equipment. My
name is Dennis Turk and I own seven Dalton lathes, one lot 3 and six
lot 4 machines. The range of age is before 1914 and to after 1925. I
do not use the lathes as they are for restoration and display.

There is a group of Dalton owners that share pictures information and
in some cases replacement parts. There is I believe 13 people in this
group. We are known as just the Dalton Gang.:-) Two of the people
live in England, as it seems Daltons ended up over there also.

There are no multi function machines in the group. The group is
comprised of one lot 2 lathe two lot 3 lathes sixteen lot 4 lathes and
one lot 6. The lot number is just in front of your serial number and
denotes the model. B-4 or B-6.

Not all lathes especially the early ones have model tags on them only
a lot #. We keep a record of all Lot and Serial numbers and this way
we can gestimate the approximate age or year of build for the lathes.

In this group there is also one very original peddle or foot powered
lathe that has the hand lever on the tailstock. Really interesting
machine. Devil to run though.

I would be interested in communicating with anyone that owns a Dalton
lathe for the purpose of tracking serial numbers and helping others
with problems with their lathes. There are a very small number of
replacement parts available. These are used but serviceable.

In some of the postings there was a question as to the age of Dalton
tool works. We know that Herbert Dalton started the company some time
before 1912 and it failed in the stock market crash of 1929. In 1930
Elecrolux purchased the property and built vacuum cleaners there

Thanks and I hope to hear form all Dalton owners.


Just purchased Dalton lathe lot #5 No 248. The lathe is missing most of the gears for the lead screw. Is there a source for these gears or if not, perhaps drawings and list gears/numbers of teeth.

Thanking you in advance.

I just found a Dalton, short bed, and has a box of change gears etc. It has been exposed for a few years but as I do restoration on machines, this should be a doable restoration. I am going to have it in my shop in a few days but I believe if is missing the gear cover (the hinged housing) and from pctures on the internet, there is also a pulley cover missing. I am sorry that do not know the names of all the parts yet. How unobtainable are these covers as I would like to make it complete if at all possible. I will post a serial number once I have the lathe on my bench and can locate it or any other identifying features. I am excited!

I realize now that there are several gears missing. i have a double gear at the top which mates to the spindle plus a 48 tooth and a 96 tooth.

Hi Dennis. I might be England's number three! I have a Dalton lathe no. 747 as
I remember it. Think it is a B4. I stored it away, but got it out the other
day to clean and sell it. After assembling it and cleaning it, I knew that I
could not sell it and that I need to finish what I started and to make the
change gears that it lacked (I bought a Clarke CLM500M and a Vertex Dividing
Head from a friend just to do that). Anyway, send me an email and I'll pop
some pictures to you. I imagine that it's nearly all there. I'm not 100% sure
on the setup, although I did have it running long enough to make two brass
spinners!

Dennis,
I would like to get in touch with you regarding my Dalton. I saved it from the scrapper, but I am fully committed to bringing it back. I would like to learn more about parts, potential parts machines or ideas. I thank you kindly,Adrian
