This 8 1/2" diameter faceplate can be fitted to lathes with spindle threads
from 1 1/2" to 2 1/4" diameter. The faceplate has a deep rim which allows
it to lie flat on the workbench to aid in setting up workpieces (note:
some lathes may not permit mounting with a full depth rim, in which case
the rim may have to be trimmed back). The casting for making the faceplate
is stress relieved cast iron with cored "T" slots. The faceplate can be
machined on the lathe except for finish machining the "T" slots which
requires a milling machine. Besides the casting, the kit for making the
faceplate includes drawings and machining instructions. A drawing is included
showing how to make a centering accessory (at right in the photo). (Note:
the angle plate at the left in the photo is a item sold separately. See
Shipping wt. of faceplate kit approx. 15 lbs.
