line of large indexing systems to fit most wood lathes with
a swing from 10 to 24 inches! We have models to fit 1.0",
1.25", 1.5" and 33 mm spindles and the Oneway
lathe (to fit their 34 mm shoulder - model #WISXL-1way).
system consists of a 10 inch*, extensively laser engraved
with index lines every 5 degrees and degree marks every
15 degrees, anodized aluminum plate with the appropriate
ID for your spindle, with three concentric rows of indexing
holes. There are three rows of indexing holes spaced 3°,
apart (2-1/2°, 3° & 4° for the 1-1/4"
model ONLY). This combination allows the user to adjust
for virtually any position around the circumference of your
is a heavy aluminum base with 2 very, very strong, 3/4 inch
diameter "rare-earth" magnets to secure the bracket
to your cast iron/steel bed ways (base also have a threaded
1/4 x 20 tpi hole for those who wish to attach it more permanently
to your lathe or to a wooden jig), a "dog point"
indexing screw and appropriate threaded jam nut to secure
with your lathe's chuck or faceplate. The bracket is easily
removed when not using the index plate.
large indexing plates are now available separately from
$48.99 so you don't need to purchase two complete systems
to outfit multiple lathes with different sized spindles!
very small number of lathes have a spindle that has a "thread
relief" or recess beyond the threaded portion of the
spindle before it goes into the headstock casting. If you
have this type of spindle you will need to make/turn a spacer
to allow the indexing plate to center on the spindle. The
GRIZZLY G0632, DELTA 46-755 & 46-715, POWEREMATIC 3520
B are lathes with this situation that we know about so far,
but there may be others. So check your spindle first!
Actual diameter is 9.94 inches. JET JWL-1236/1442 lathe's
motor position will not allow the use of our large indexing
system unless customer either makes or purchases a spindle
extender, (these have many uses but one is extending the
space between the head stock and the back of your turning
to enable you to work on the back of your turning more easily),
