Faceplate for the Axminster SIEG SC4 Lathe. 7" diameter. Very useful when trying to hold irregular shaped objects. An additional clamp kit is available to hold the workpiece securely. Eight clamping holes available. Please note, the chuck guard and mounting arm need to be removed to allow use of the faceplate.

Chuck Guard ProblemAn alternative to changing the guards retaining bolt etc - its a quick job to machine a small slot through the back of the faceplate ribs to suit the offending nut...

Chuck guard problemWhen using this faceplate with the SIEG SC4 lathe the chuck guard will foul the faceplate. Axminster state that the chuck guard needs to be removed but if this is done an interlock microswitch will have to be disabled also. I found a better solution to keep the gaurd in place and keep the interlock operational is to remove the guard's retaining bolt, washer, two nuts and spring. Replace these with a spring washer and a 5mm x 40mm screw, retain the original washer and the white nylon bush and reassemble. There will be plenty of clearance now and the guard and interlock work perfectly.

A substantial faceplateVery pleased with the quality. A solid faceplate which runs true (less than 0.05mm total runout on the rim of mine).
