    Default Rivett 1020S For Sale - CL Ad

    I have no association with this listing. Just came across it this morning browsing through listings. Itís in the Tulsa area. This probably isnít on the radar since nowhere in the description does he mention it as a Rivett. He simply calls it a ďcollet lathe with tooling.Ē Apparently heís asking $4K for it. Spindle appears to be rusted.

    Sharp eyes, Travis! I have family 45 minutes from it, and I'm tempted to ask somebody to check it out. It could be quite a prize.

    Looks like it's just the spindle nose protector that's rusted.
    Has the accumulator dial on the cross slide.
    It's an early one with the spindle lock, upper left knob on the headstock.

    I just talked with the owner and am getting him to take more pictures which Iíll post when he sends them. No steady rest. No follow rest. Has taper attachment. Wonít part out.

    I was curious if it was the nose protector I was looking at but just couldnít tell.

    I'd buy that for $4000. If just for a source of parts.
    I've heard Keith rucker has plans to make castings of his steady and follow rests.

    I just noticed that it also has a threading stop rod, which was apparently optional. There appears to be a toggle switch, which I assume has something to do with it, down there on the tail end of it by the serial number plate/cover.

    I would love to restore it, but my big shop isn't built yet.

    It's actually a set screw and lock nut. There is one on either side of the casting.
    They are used to adjust the micro switches that start and stop the spindle.dscn0072.jpg
