My wife inherited a Delta 46-700 lathe from here dad. I am trying to find a face plate and chuck since it came with nothing but the threaded drive center. Will most aftermarket plates and chucks fit or do I have to find a specific brand? When I looked at several online lathe suppliers they don't tell you what makes and models fit. Were just getting started in turning so don't want to spend a bunch

Thanks for the info. Can you translate "#2 Morse taper in head and tail stock and is 1 in. by 8 tpi 1 in. by 8 tpi"? I have no manual for the unit so most am a little lost. Would a aftermarket have these sizes listed?

Aftermarkets will have those specs listed they're the standard taper size and standard thread specs.

The threads on the spindle in the headstock are 1"x8 tpi. So the spindle is 1" thick. The #2 MT is the size of the taper of the Drive center and live center that fit inside spindle of the headstock and the ram of the tail stock.

Any faceplate or chuck with 1"x8 thread or no.2 morse taper will fit in the head stock, also you will need a live center with a no. 2 morse taper for the tail stock.
