Default Clausing model 110 lathe

I just brought home a Clausing model 110 lathe. Its seem to be in generally good condition, although it's not running due to the headstock cover/ clutch assembly being removed and a broken piece of the casting weld back on. The PO passed away before he could finish it and it's been sitting in a damp shop for several years so it's got some surface rust to clean up too. As I found it-


I moved it into a storage shed yesterday and gave all the exposed iron a coating of oil because I might not get to it for a few months. It's pretty heavy too, 300-350lbs I'd estimate. I'm looking for users of the lathe to get an idea of its capabilities and info on the clutch assembly.
Does anyone out there have one of these? I'd like to restore it and replace my Atlas TH42 with it as this lathe is substantially sturdier.

Welcome to SFT

Lots of web resources, but this one is really good:

Tony's site.

They made excellent machines, usually with a pair of tapered Timken roller bearings supporting the headstock. Can't wait to see if finished.

That will be a sweet little lathe once it is restored. In addition to Tony's site you may want to give Clausing a shout. http://www.clausing-industrial.com/P...es/clathes.htm You never know what they may have in the archives.

Ooops, sorry about the pics, you're right, almost everyone else uses offsite hosting. I prefer your way really, it's easier.
I've been in contact with Tony, nice guy, he's been very helpful with this and a Simonet lathe I have too. But I would like to find a few users stateside to get some tips from.
