50mm diameter faceplate is CNC-produced for maximum accuracy and perfect balance. The timber mounting holes are fully countersunk on the rear face and lightly countersunk on the front face to ensure proper seating of the timber; circular grooves are provided to aid the centring of the blank on the plate. Please note that the 50mm faceplate is available with the 3/4" x 16tpi thread only.

Fantastic Qualty and price must have itemI have after 25 years of turning brought a second Lathe just for small dimension turnings and Pens. I needed a decent small plate for bowls and Vases and this little faceplate is master piece. It is incredibly well engineered from very thick steel has ample screw placements holes which except a 6mm threaded coach screw my fixing of choice with 4 of these screwed into end grain make an amazing hold for turning deep vessels. I would say for the Money it is a fantastic buy and must have go on treat yourselves your worth it.
