    Hello, first of all forgive my English. I bought a 750mm lathe and I have missing pieces. I'm from Argentina and here they do not get spare parts:wall:. I have looked for ebay and I have not found it. someone would tell me where I could buy with international shipping. and the specific name of the pieces that I need? I'm going to upload images with the pieces that are missing. someone speaks Spanish? thank you very much

    my lathe is gamma 750;

    Hopefully you have a parts manual that came along with your lathe?

    If not it will be difficult to 'describe' parts to get correct replacements without knowing at least the model type of the machine. Think of this exercise just getting parts for your car.

    From the rear splash pan insignia, it looks like it could be a Steelmaster? I Googled that name & here is a typical vendor. Hopefully with searches like this you can correlate your model number, year made, maybe even a serial number which would be very helpful to get the correct parts.

    http://www.assetplant.com/SM-1022A-Bench-Lathe-Steelmaster-550mm-Centres-250mm-Swing-Pwr-Cross-Feed

    Some vendors are pretty good about keeping PDF manuals & documentation available online so you can identify parts using the manufacturers own numbering system. For example Grizzly, click on a specific lathe, View Details, then it shows typical manuals. They do a good job of making clean manuals, many other machine manufacturers don't go through this effort & th eoriginal Asian manuals can be quite primitive.
    https://www.grizzly.com/metal-lathes

    Having said all this, I will guess your lathe is made in China. That's good & bad. Good is it might be a popular size & available under different paint colors & brand names so higher chance of getting parts. Bad is that the machines are often inconsistent even when they look very similar. They can have changes even with same brand name year to year.

    So my advise is to start with the name 'Steelmaster' & find distributers/parts suppliers that way.

    Thanks! The lathe says gamma 750 model. the manual says model cj0623. Now I will search on the internet for that model and some spare parts supplier. if you can provide data I will be grateful. Thank you very much for taking time to answer. and again they forgive my
    basic English.

    Sieg lathe has a lot of difference name depending on which dealer is selling the lathe under their name. In basis the lathe is same + extra equipment around the lathe.

    I learned out the cj0623 is the other TENGZHOU WELLON MACHINERY CO.,LTD lathe who is producing the parts same as Sieg lathe with difference colour and name. See this lathe

    LittleMachineShop.com sells many replacement parts for Chinese machines. They are good guys to work with and I suspect they can handle the international shipping.

    It's a 918/920 from Sieg.

    9" Swing- 18 or 20" between centres. It will have a different motor for different voltages and probably metric rather than imperial but that's about it.

    Incredibly documented over many years.

    That's about it

    I'm not sure if you are showing us your existing parts just disassembled or parts you specifically want replaced. But someone made a good observation about metric vs. imperial versions of the otherwise same machine.

    If for example your cross slide lead screw assembly is damaged, a North American based supplier would probably only have Imperial (threads per inch = TPI) lead screw, nut & graduated dial. Yet the parts may be numbered the exact same in the manual! Sometimes these Asian manuals & parts assembly diagrams are not the highest quality ;). Just wanting to make sure you get the correct parts! :thumbup:

    Hi, I've exchanged emails with www.grizzly.com they have everything I need. I have not been able to make the purchase yet. Because they only send to Canada and the USA. Some other provider know? thanks
