    Question Lathe thread sizes

    I have a couple of items that I acquired somewhere and would like to sell on ebay, but I need some information on which brand/ size lathes they will fit on:

    Faceplate with 1 1/4 - 12 threads.

    Headstock Jacobs chuck with 1" - 8 threads.

    Thanks for your help.

    I think the 1" - 8 is more or less standard for wood lathes...not sure though, you ought to get independent confirmation.

    When listing the Jacobs headstock chuck, make sure to mention "fits 6" Atlas Craftsman lathe" in the title, you'll get maximum exposure & a high final bid.

    (Don't forget to have the word lathe in the title)
