  • Turning Accessories
    most annoying to change lathes or if you have two different lathes to find that all of your centres drills etc have the wrong Morse shank size These adapters allow you to sleeve smaller sizes up to fit a larger swallow that s the name for the hole in the spindle or quill If you are not sure of the size of the Morse Taper in your lathe take a look at this simple method of measuring Spindle Thread Adapters As with the Morse Taper Adaptor Sleeves shown above these useful bits of kit allow chucks and accessories to be used on various lathes with varying threads thus avoiding the problem of having to switch lathes when you need to change chucks on a piece of work They are also great if you have just bought a new lathe and found that all your old chucks no longer fit the new headstock thread it is certainly cheaper than replacing all your chucks In the descriptions that follow the first size given e g 1 x 8 tpi F refers to the size of your existing lathe spindle this is the size of the female thread in the adaptor the thread in the hole The second size stated e g 3 4 x 16 tpi M is the size of the threaded male stud which protrudes from the end of the adaptor and which effectively becomes the new spindle size Long Hole Boring Kit This handy kit contains everything you need to get started on long hole boring and a range of interesting projects The kit comprises a fixed hollow cup centre a counterbore which is used in the headstock to support the end of the workpiece once bored and a standard shell auger We also stock Planet Manufacturing LHB Kits Hollow Cup Centre The same centre as supplied in the kit above If you need a spare or are making up your own kit or need a different Morse taper for the tailstock than for the headstock here are the parts If you are not sure of the size of the Morse Taper in your lathe take a look at this simple method of measuring Hollow Live Centre A live hollow centre can be very useful in lieu of the hollow cup centres mentioned above Suitable versions are shown on the centres page and below Shell Augers The traditional and still the best and affordable tools for long hole boring on the woodturning lathe The standard shell auger is available in a variety of sizes The normal shell augers can be very difficult to sharpen successfully but a newer version called the deluxe auger helps overcome this difficulty as well as providing improved chip clearance with a spiral flute All augers should be used carefully and slowly withdrawing the tool often to clear the waste from the hole Pen Mandrels and Pen Making Accessories Many turners find the making of pens a totally absorbing craft as well as providing a

  • APTC Faceplates
    piece lying flat and secure against the faceplate We supply these faceplates in thread sizes to suit most popular spindle threads We also include two dual threaded faceplates to suit 1 1 2 inch x 6 tpi spindles featuring both left and right hand threads cut such that they cross each other and can be used on both left and right handed threads These are intended for use with earlier lathes such as the ever popular Harrison Graduate and its derivatives which feature a right handed thread on the inboard side of the headstock for conventional turning and a left hand spindle thread on the outboard side of the headstock which is used for outboard turning opposite handed allowing the greater capacity of the outboard side of the headstock to be used Since there is a very real danger of the equipment mounted on the spindle becoming detached under load this thread has to be left handed so that the working pressure keeps the facplate locked onto the spindle NB Prices quoted in pounds sterling Value Added Tax will be added to invoices to EU residents unless a valid VAT registration number is quoted when ordering 1997 2011 P Hemsley

  • Toolrests
    4 1 1 1 8 25mm and 30mm diameter You may need to use a vernier or dial caliper or even a micrometer to measure your existing stem unless you can find the size in the manufacturer s literature or instruction book Next select the Crossbar or toolrest which suits your requirements The two items stem and crossbar are simply screwed together to make a perfect toolrest The stems all use the same screw fitting to mount the crosspiece with securing flats machined on the stem to ensure a perfect fit when screwed into the toolrest So once you have the stem you can just keep on adding different crossbars though for a small extra cost why not order a stem for each and have the luxury of being able to replace the complete toolrest assembly instead of screwing and unscrewing parts each time The Crossbars are available in three straight bar lengths of 4 6 and 9 together with a 9 S bar for internal and a reverse 9 S bar for external bowl turning Also available is a box scraper platform for easy access and extra stability when working into the bottom of boxes Also listed is an adaptor we produce to allow owners of VB36 lathes with the mighty 40 mm toolpost size to use 1 diameter toolposts in their lathes It is a simple device approx 200mm long which slips into the VB toolpost support and has a 1 bore with a couple of hex socket screws to lock the inserted toolpost into place Once attached the toolpost and adaptor can be treated as a single unit with the adaptor left in place unless you have several 1 post toolrests to adapt Finally if you have a banjo where the toolpost socket is 30 mm 1

  • WivaMac Lathes
    know that these are products built with care in Belgium and are built to engineering standards that we have almost forgotten in the UK and elsewhere in the English speaking world yes the engineering is done by engineers not accountants in Belgium I also knew that this was a machine to which I would be proud to put my name having bought owned and turned on a DB1200 for several years From that point it was an easy step to agree that the time had come to offer the DB series of woodturning lathes to a wider market There are four lathe models in the WivaMac DB series each featuring a fabulous 260 mm 10 23 centre height over the bed 520 mm 20 47 diameter over bed capacity with various drive options making a total of eight models from which to choose All share a common theme of massively robust construction and a systems approach to turning that permits not just bowl and spindle work but copy turning ornamental turning and thread cutting to be performed on one machine A truly unique and remarkable capability Each lathe has its own dedicated page on our site where specifics for the machine are described and from which purchases may be initiated These are DB801 802 lathe s 820 mm between centres 520 mm over bed bench mounted floor stand available as an optional extra This superb lathe features Vario electronic variable speed control as standard DB800 lathe 820 mm between centres and 520 mm over bed bench mounted but with an optional floor stand available with choice of drives DB1000 lathe 960 mm between centres 520 mm over bed floor standing and offering a choice of three drives including continuous electronically variable speed the Vario system DB1200 lathe 1250 mm between
