Wood Lathe Headstock

Spindle Washers

Wood Lathe Headstock Spindle Washers

Molded of precision HDPE plastic & made in USA.

These precision washers make the removal of the chuck and/or faceplate easy on all lathes.

We guarantee it - these are not like the pressed-fiber washers used in the past - these are precision cast and cut to give you years of excellent service.

These washers are great problem solvers

For example, thread tolerances on lathes are not very strict, and therefore you might encounter problems when installing a new chuck on the head stock of your lathe. 

Here's why:

  • It is critical that chuck not bottom out on the threads but should be snug against the flat of the headstock. 
  • If your chuck does not bottom out on the flat, you need to insert something that is quite precision that will allow this to happen or else you will encounter wobble, and any wobble, no matter how small will cause problems.
  • These precision molded washers will solve this problem, as well as making the problem of removing the chuck from a metal-to-metal contact which can make the chucks very difficult to remove.
  • It would be a good idea to have one or more of these for every lathe in your shop.
