Craftsman Midi Lathe

Has anyone successfully found and attached a bed extension for this lathe?

I looked at customer reviews of the lathe on the Sears website and apparently the bed extension is just another example of Sears vapor hardware. Rikon makes a 12 X 16 midi lathe and it might be that Rikon builds this model for Sears. If Rikon offers a bed extension for their lathe, you could check on the dimensions to see if it fits your Craftsman lathe.

This page from Amazon may be helpful:

It works on some Craftsman lathes.

I own this Craftsman lathe and I had ordered a new drive belt for it. The belt came in a plastic bag with a Rikon part # on it. Iam guessing that this lathe is made by Rikon for Craftman

I own the Rikon 70-100 and looked at the display model of that craftsman, it seemed identical to the Rikon except for the colors.

I agree, soon after I posted this I took another look at Rikon since I know they made my band saw and saw the similarity (no pun intended). I'll take some time tomorrow and call Rikon to see if they can confirm.
