LatheCity tip

[ Manual ]-read before ordering

CNC cut taper

Putting a shoulder on the spindle would be significantly more expensive. If you need a shoulder to hold a chuck then use a nut and eventually a washer. Tighten the nut against the chuck. The thread length (1.5") is long enough for most chucks which require only 1" thread length. 1-8TPI nuts should be available locally in a good hardware store, but we also offer these together with the spindle. In addition, various chucks are in circulation which require different thread length. This spindle has an adjustable thread length.

These are right hand threads, i.e., don't reverse RPM.

The spindles are taped at the backend for 1/4-20 bolts which can be used to fix a drawbar. A drawbar is common on metal lathes. It is a bolt or threaded rod which is inserted into the backend of the spindle to secure the spindle. This may not be necessary for wood lathes.

The spindles have a runout smaller 0.002" which is sufficient for wood lathes. The piece is cut on a lathe with spindle runout of 0.0004"-0.0006"
