  • Evan's lathe

    Evan:
    I was looking at picture of your South Bend lathe with the index plate mounted on it. Do you use a sleeve on the index plate side with a bolt through the spindle
    and a morse taper sleeve in the threaded end of the spindle to hold it in place? Is the sleeve and the index plate pined together to keep the index plate from rotating while in use?

    Gordon,

    Here is a link to a previous thread that shows the mandrel.

    I don't pin the plate on, it is held quite securely with a large brass nut.
