  • How do I lock the spindle? Monarch K

    Can't switch threaded chucks

    Make an expanding plug that fits the spindles through hole so you have a way of grabbing the spindle.

      Sorry if it sounds obvious, but did you try setting the gears to the lowest speed before trying to unscrew the chuck?

        low gear is it. I do not believe any Monarch has used a threaded spindle nose since before WW2.

          Low gear it is. I am afraid this chuck has been on there for a long time.
          Looks like a spindle brake is going to be a project.

            Good point. Miner, are you sure it has a threaded spindle and not D1-6?

              the spindle brake should be the up position on the clutch control rod.
