Want to buy faceplate

Post by theg8nw » Mon Aug 01, 2022 1:53 am

Looking for a 12-inch D1-4 face place. The used lathe I just got had everything else except the cast iron faceplate, it's something I need for a project. Never thought finding one would be hard A,10" would work but kind of pushing it.

Thanks

John

While not the best option, get a threaded faceplate, chuck up an appropriate piece of round stock in your 4-jaw, center it up, and turn a thread with a shoulder to fit the faceplate threads.

Another option might be to slot a thick piece of aluminum so that the jaws of your 4-jaw fit in the slots. make sure it's thick enough for the jaws to be below the surface. Fill the aluminum with slots and threaded holes as needed.

Thanks Steve, I have considered those options which I may have to do for this project, but would still like to have one.

Lost creek machine has one for $95

You probably couldn't buy the materials to make one for that.

Not sure if the extra 1/2" is a dealbreaker.
