Welcome. Please follow me as I restore this 6" Atlas lathe to working order. The priorities are removing rust, repairing what I can, and rebuilding what is broken or missing. As you can see from the pics there is surface rust on most exposed surfaces, but anything that was covered is pretty clean. The gears are good, and the bedway doesn't feel pitted. The one major issue is I think the machine fell on its front an broke some handles and bent some lead screws. We'll cross that bridge when we get there. First, cleanup.
