  • Taig Lathe Spindle Dimensions

    Did a search but didn't find an answer.

    Anyone have a drawing or something that shows the dimensions of the Taig lathe spindle (the end where the chuck etc screw on) ?

    I already know it is threaded 3/4"-16 tpi and has a register area which makes it somewhat longer than the Sherline spindle and that is about it.

    cheers, Graham

    On the standard Taig spindle the threaded part sticks out about .525. The internal bore is a little over .375, with a short 15 degree taper on the inside to fit it's special collets.

    If this concerns the use of Sherline chucks on a Taig, or the opposite, I think you have to make a spacer for one and or machine the bore on the backside of the other. Not really sure.

      The bore is just over 5/16"
      As far as I know there's no detail drawing, the register portion is about 1/8" long before the threads start.

        Thanks guys,

        The length of the spindle nose (threaded portion) and length of the register are two items I needed. Last bit of info is the diameter of the register area?

        Nick, I am very aware of your web site as I have visited and poked through many of the links many times.

        Thanks, Graham

          This is a Taig backplate.

            It would measure .750.
