  • lathe face plate

    I have a ridgid lathe I bought about 6 years ago from either Home Depot or Lowes'. I am in need of a 6 or 8 inch faceplate. The threaded stud is 3/4inch dia. and has 12 threads in the inch. It seems that Ridgid doesn't carry this any longer. Where can I get one to fit my lathe?

    Here is an 8" that Sears carries. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...21x00003a#desc The arbor size is 3/4 x 16 threads. You can buy a tap and drill bit and make all the face plates you want out of wood. Just drill and tap the center of a block of wood and screw it onto the arbor, then turn it round. Drill screw holes or just use glue or turners tape to attach your work pieces to it.

        Smallen, Ridgid only made one lathe, the WL1200. The old Emerson made Craftsman is exactly like it. Sears dropped Emerson around 98 and Ridgid came out in 2000. Ridgid parts used to list the Craftsman model # for all thier power tools too, until TTI took over production of all Ridgid power tools. That is also when Ridgids line of handheld power tools started, about 2003.

          i have manuals for 2 models, WL1200 and Wl1200LS, if they used the same spindle he has no problem ordering the 4" or 6" face plate from ridgid as i posted

          the wl1200 was made by emerson as you poseted, the wl1200ls was made by tti

            I've got a new one that's still in the factory plastic wrapping. Send me an e-mail if you're interested and we can discuss the details.

            Also, for you and anyone else who needs one I have a total of (3) 6" face plates, (1) 3" Face Plate, (3) Bowl Turning Tool Rests, (1) 12" Straight Tool Rest, (1) 6" Tool Rest, and also an 8 piece Delta cutting tool set. Everything is new except for the straight rests. Some guy sold me a "perfect" Ridgid lathe that ended up not working at all. Fortunately he gave me all of these accessories with it so maybe now I can get my money back.
