"Universal" Indexing Systems

Alisam's accessory is a complete "universal" system for indexing on most 7 to 12 inch wood lathes!

The system consists of a 7 inch, laser engraved, anodized aluminum plate with a 1 inch center ID spindle hole (or 3/4 inch depending on the model), and two concentric rows of indexing holes. The outer row of 72 holes are spaced 5 degrees apart and the inner row of 20 holes are 18 degrees apart. This combination allows the user to adjust for virtually any position around the circumference of your turning!

Included is a custom, heavy aluminum angle bracket with 2 very strong, "rare-earth" magnets to secure the bracket to your cast iron/steel bed ways (or use a clamp to position bracket where needed to fit your lathe), a "dog point" indexing screw and a 1 inch x 8 tpi threaded jam nut (or 3/4 inch x 16 tpi jam nut depending on the model), to secure the indexing plate on your spindle. You may also secure the plate to the spindle with your lathe's chuck or faceplate. The bracket is easily removed when not using the index place.

Customize your turnings quickly and easily just by aligning the indexing screw to any hole you choose and your ink, paint, router or carving tools add your personal artistic touch to your work!
