Sears Dunlap 9x30 woodworking lathe, built by Power-King around 1941.
This lathe is basically the same as the earlier Craftsman 101.06241 and Power-King's model 7090.
This model has ¾-16 threaded nose with #1MT sockets.
The spindle runs on Oilite bronze and ball thrust bearings.
The motor is a ½hp 1725rpm Westinghouse with dual shafts.
The Craftsman turning tool set is in the original box.

>>HISTORY<<
June 2013:
The lathe, accessories, motor and turning tool set are from a neighbor who no longer wanted them.
The tool rest slide was broken (appears to have been dropped).
The tailstock ram locking lever is sheared off at the casting.
The faceplate is home-made from a plate of steel and a nut welded to the back.
The motor runs whisper quiet.

UPDATE-July 2013:
Disassembled.
Washed parts in Dawn Industrial soap and hot water.
Sherwin-Williams NOW Royal Blue #21207 spray paint.
Installed new belt and reassembled.

UPDATE-May 2015:
Temporarily clamped to a workbench and powered up with a Dunlap 1/3hp motor.
Test turning on a chunk 2" pine.
This lathe runs beautifully at all speeds--a pleasure to use.
(Purchased a replacement banjo on eBay earlier and replaced the tailstock lock handle from my rat hole collection.)
