Some things that are old and scarce are incredibly valuable.
Like comic books. Action Comics No. 1 introducing Superman is hard to find and worth $1.5 million.
Some old things are built so well that they continue to run with the right support. With LeBlond Regal parts, you can keep your Regal lathe chugging for some time.
Technically, LeBlond Regal lathes are vintage machines and not antiques because most are not older than 100 years.
Can’t Beat OEM Parts for your Regal
LeBlond sells OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts for LeBlond Regal lathes. In other words, all LeBlond Regal parts are created from the drawings and meet the specifications of the original equipment.
We have LeBlond Regal parts going back to the Word War II era, and in some cases, earlier. You just need to identify a serial number on your machine. We can assist you in finding the serial number on your machine if necessary.
LeBlond Regal Parts Are Available
Vintage Regals are known for their reliability and craftsmanship. There are many vintage lathes that are solid machines. Finding a vintage machine with parts support, however, can be tricky.
Ask Aaron Newswanger of Blue Ball Machine Company, Inc. The Pennsylvania-based machine parts dealers fields requests for LeBlond Regal parts and other vintage brands.
Recently, Newswanger had a client in the agricultural field who had a servo shift Regal where the spindle nut in the tailstock was stripped (see image above). They were able to contact LeBlond easily to replace the spindle nut with a new one. Newswanger felt LeBlond Regal parts are affordable, and more importantly, available.
Good Luck with Other Vintage Lathe Parts
Other vintage lathes present obstacles when looking for parts.
“We work on a lot of older machines and parts are always a problem,” Aaron said. “For older machines and brands other than LeBlond, you can’t get parts and you have to make them.”
LeBlond Regal lathes are vintage machines but can still function as a workhorse in your machine shop if supported properly. A Regal might not be as valuable as a classic, rare comic but it can be equal a thing of beauty when outfitted with new OEM LeBlond Regal parts to keep it cutting and turning like a champion.

posted earlier today about my 1943 13in regal.
received a reply to ask if i was interested in doing a piece on the machine for our blog.
have somehow lost your reply but would love to be able to send you details if you wish.
oddly enough, i have a friend who also had a leblond that has lost its serial number ( i presume it would have had a few refurbishments in its life and so the number may have been scraped off)
i sent a few photos to a mr dengle (since retired) who told us whilst he could not pinpoint the year it was almost certainly pre 1900.
not sure if this one is still in service but happy to look in to it if you are interested.
this one was obviously belt driven originally but had an electric motor fitted at some point in its life.
i would love to do a complete refurb on my machine if poss (if i can live that long) can`t seem to locate the original leblond grey paint over here.
its in john deere green at the moment but would like it to go back to factory finish.
also, are the original factory head stickers still available??
