Wade 8a parts various


All of these parts are off a non-Tachometer/Early Wade 8a, steel cabinet. The serial number was ground off but it is similar to my Wade 8a who’s serial number is 407. Check your application, please. You’re responsible for fitment. I’m just trying to keep these parts from ending up in the scrap yard.


Don’t see a part you need? Ask. I may have it. If not, I probably pulled it to get my Wade working again. Or, sadly, it was lost/broken when the previous owner tipped over the lathe while moving it.


All prices OBO. Bundled pricing available. Shipping extra. I’ll box up as best I can. (LTL/Trucking not really an option for me.)


I wire brushed the parts to ensure you can see if any wear exists. I suggest further clean up and fitting as necessary.


For the record, Andy Fitzgibbons is aware of these parts. :)

This is the first batch of parts. I have yet to get into the drive unit but will at some point. Again, see something you need, please ask.

Sadly don't need anything here...why would someone grind the serial number off?!?

Who knows. Conspiracy theorists could go nuts. Personally, I could see someone permanently borrowing the lathe from the Navy and removed the serial number to hide their transgression. I've heard of motorcycles, guns, etc, etc "walking away" after WWII. Why not a lathe?

Please note: I can't edit the original post. The following are sold, pending funds.

  • Threading dial assembly
  • Cross slide lead screw assembly
  • Top slide lead screw assembly
  • Cross slide base
  • Top slide base with graduations and typical interference scars
  • Way wipers

Graft and corruption were endemic in WW2. Coveted, for example, were American motor pool jobs in Europe. Why? Gas was selling for $5/gallon, in 1940's dollars. T'was a bit of a free for all, private enterprise at its finest. A spare lathe or two was chump change by comparison.

Check out the sales going on in Afghanistan now. Same stripe.
