Delta 46-715 Reeves drive problem

user-4422253's picture

I know that parts for this lathe are no longer available thru Delta.  I need a new Reeves drive--the half that attaches to the motor shaft.  Does anyone know of any other lathe that uses the Reeves drive that may fit the Delta motor shaft?  By the way, this is a replacement  motor that came from China with a shaft that is slightly larger in diam. than the Reeves drive arbor.  To make it fit I had to take it to a machine shop to have it redrilled and the keyway recut to make it fit.  Now the cheap pot metal drive has worn and no longer stays aligned in the keyway so the Reeves drive won't mesh.  I need to get it fixed so I can sell it.  This is Black & Decker junk!
