Product Information:

Tired of the hassle of mounting wooden blocks to your lathe faceplates? Now you can make all the glue face plates and jam chucks you want without ever having to mount blocks on your metal faceplates again! These taps are machined in lathe spindle sizes so that after you have drilled and tapped a wooded block, you simply mount the block directly onto your lathe. The tapped block can then be put to use in a special faceplate, vacuum fixture or other mounting assembly. Instructions included.


  • 1" x 8 TPI
  • Great for making your own glue faceplates and jam chucks

    Comments about Beall Spindle Tap, 1" x 8 TPI :

    I recently upgraded my lathe from a very old one with a 3/4 inch spindle, to a new one with a 1 inch spindle. Instead of ordering a bunch of faceplates in the new size, I ordered to spindle tap to make my own. I have found that I use it several times a week to make threaded glue blocks, jam chucks and friction chucks. I even used it to make a 12" sanding disc. The quality of this product is outstanding. I can see this being an integral part of my turning for years to come.

    Comments about Beall Spindle Tap, 1" x 8 TPI :

    Great tool that saves money on specialty face plates and enables you to make unique things like vacuum chucks. I only wish there were better instructions included. Fortunately, I had a magazine that showed the proper techniques. It would have also helped if there was an optional handle available.
