Discussion for the Delta 46-250 Type 1 Midi-Lathe

Ask a question, answer a question, or post a comment!
Question: Belt Type
my 46-250 Delta midi lathe uses a 2-groove flaty belt, but the IPB calls it a V-belt. Which is which???
Reply: Belt Type
The 1340949 V-Belt, is a flat belt with grooves in it most manufactures will call it a Poly V Belt.
Question: Main Bearings For Midi Lathe
Before I bought my FISCH TOOLS TC90-100 midi lathe in 2005, I had a Delta 46-250 type 1. Since then what few parts I have had to replace we're all interchangeable. Now the main bearings of the Fisch #6005-RS XCL might need replacing. I wonder if this bearing (146555-01) will fit the Fisch?

By looking at the 146555-01 bearing. And comparing it to the numbers on the Fisch bearing provided in your post, these bearings are interchangeable.
Hope this helps,
Question: Spindl Shaft Diameter
What is the thread pitch and diameter of the spindle shaft?
Reply: Spindl Shaft Diameter
The manufacture does not disclose that information on this item. In some cases I wish they would give us more specs on the items that we sell for them.
Question: 46-250 Faceplate
I have a delta 46-250 midi. Is there a faceplate available that is compatable? The part listed is obsolete. Wondering if one for another model would work.

Reply: 46-250 Faceplate
I just looked at the 46-936 face plate and it is obsolete also. Does anyone know of another manufactur that would have a fit for this? What is the thread pitch and diameter of the shaft?
Question: Delta 46-250 Midi Lathe Motor
The motor is discontinued. Any hints on a replacement 1/2 HP motor that will fit.
Reply: Delta 46-250 Midi Lathe Motor
In most cases with these motors you can find replacements by just having some information from the existing motor. If you have the motor model and make most electric motor companies can cross reference it for you.If not you will need as much information as possible such as shaft length and size,type of key way,direction of rotation ( clock or counter clockwise) and type of mount. Granger is a great place for motors .Their Dayton line is a good and price well.Hope this helps.good luck.
Question: V-Belt Change
How do you change the v-belt on a Delta 46-250 type 2 mini lathe?
Reply: V-Belt Change
I had to remove the hand wheel, upper drive pulley, and shaft when I replaced mine.
Loosen set screws and slide out shaft just enough to slip belt onto upper pulley.
Then realign pulley and tighten set screws.
Question: Serpentine Belt
I have a Delta Lathe, Model 46-250 serpentine belt. It is Approx 24-25 inches long. I have the series # because there doesn't appear to be one. Do you have or vsn you get it? Price??
Reply: Serpentine Belt
The only belt that I can see that is used in this lathe is part number 1340949.
Hope this answered your question,
Have a midi-lathe model #46-250 and need a capacitor for the motor. The part # is 900286, which is no longer available. Does anyone know if there is a compatable capacitor for this?
This is a standard CBB60 SH configuration motor starting capacitor. 30 mf, 300VAC
