Tired of the hassle of mounting wooden blocks to your lathe faceplates? Now you can make all the glue faceplates and jam chucks you want without ever having to mount blocks on your metal faceplates...
- 1-1/4" x 8 TPI
- Great for making your own glue faceplates and jam chucks
I love the spindle tap! Great investment for the price. It's easy to use and worked just as I expected it. I look forward to using it quite a bit in the future. Pro: Very easy to use. I drilled a 1 1/8" hole w/ a Forstner bit. Then slowly twisted the tap into the hole blowing out the wood chips every few twists. Worked great! and mounted to the lathe perfectly. The only Con I have is that the shaft has a square at the end. If it where hex, then you could drive this with a ratchet or wrench set. I will just make a custome handle for it.
Works as Advertised
Follow the directions and you get exactly what was promised - a very useful addition to my armory of attachment options
Good for making Lathe face plates for segmented bowls
Great "tool" for woodturners
Obviously for screwless faceplates so I can even turn that 3/4 thick special piece of "thin" wood into a marketable plate or platter.
Whats on tap?
Very nice tap, simple to use. It's nice to be able to tap a block of wood and use it as a jam chuck or face plate on my lathe. Great money saver.
