I thought I read a post on this board regarding where a body could buy metric D1-4 camlock studs with metric threads. I did a search and drew a blank. Can anyone point me towords a supplier?

I believe D-1-4 is a industry standard. I have never heard of a "metric" equivalent, nor have I have I ever seen one in a catalogue. Besides the D-1-4 is just the backing plate for any chuck you choose, unless it is integral with the chuck (BIG $'s).
Maybe we can help if you tell us why you are shopping for metric.

D1-4 is an industry standard however the metrics come with a metric thread to screw into a chuck, backingplate, etc. I need three for a faceplate that came with my Jet lathe. They also come with SAE threads.

Guess I should have asked for camlock studs with metric threads

Are you sure it is D4 and not an A series? Check with these guys, they have inch and metric studs for the A series chucks.

It's d1-4.
Call Grizzly customer service, they will have them as I have a scrap 13x40 jet that I am slowly stripping for spares for my Grizzly 13x40. They are the same machines. I havn't needed any spare parts for the Griz, but in ten or twenty years, you never know. I have 2 of everything, feed rod, lead screw, head, motor; everything but the threading gear box and saddle.

J&L Industrial Supply catalogue (www.jlindustrial.com) shows D1-4" studs threaded M10X1 (as well as 7/16-20). Their order number CKJ-99104L.

Thanks "Old_Dave". Great resource that somehow escaped me. It is now bookmarked.

This came up in another thread too. I hope the poster is reading this!

I should add that while 7/16-20 is designated as the standard thread for D1-4 camlock studs, I don't know if there is a standard metric thread alternative. According to my Bison literature, they use M10X1 (I suspect that what J&L sells is a Bison product). I think you'd want to verify the thread size on other chuck brands before ordering.
