Lathe Spindle Adapter 5/8 straight to 3/4-16 threaded

#272386 by OneAcre » Sun Jul 19, 2020 4:01 pm

I have in my shop a Record CL3 bench mounted lathe with a 3/4-16 threaded spindle, as well as a small Carba-Tec mini lathe with that same spindle.

Problem: The Record lathe is nice and heavy and solid, but isn't mobile. The Carba-Tec is very mobile, but a little on the light duty side.

The 10ER however is mobile and sufficiently heavy for most projects. I can roll it in front of the roll up door and easily blow out the shop after a project. Only thing is, I've accumulated a lot of accessories to fit the 3/4-16 spindles.

Solution.... I ordered the following 5/8 straight to 3/4-16 threaded adapter online. The quality is pretty good, and now I can run all the 3/4-16 accessories I've accumulated on my 10ER!
