I recently obtained a Unimat SL-1000 lathe.
Would like to find a good source for parts and accessories.

- Blue Ridge Macninery, they have whats left of the Manufactuers parts.
- Campbell Tools, they get trades in from time to time.
- I think Sherline makes 3 and 4 jaw chucks to fit the SL.
- Make your own parts on the machine itself. See "The Shop Wisdom
of Rudy Kouhoupt", "Making the Most of the Unimat" by Russ Tingey,
Back issues of "Model Engineer's Workshop" magazine with articles by
Bob Loader. There have also been occasional articles in Live Steam,
Model Railroader and the erstwhile Finelines (all many years ago).
Unimat SL has been out of production for some time. The remainder of
the parts and accessories were bought by:
Blue Ridge Machinery & Tools
Sherline also makes 3 & 4 jaw chucks to fit. As a dealer, I can get
these for you.
I still have a few adaptors that allow the SL chucks to be used on a
watchmakers lathe (as well as another for the Mark III).
