150mm 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. The 150mm plate is made with a separate threaded insert for thread sizes up to 25mm. This allows the faceplate to be interchanged between lathes with different headstock threads.

Nicely made but with one omissionThis is an extremely well made faceplate so worth the price I feel. The only downside is it’s not fitted with retaining screws like my Axminster chuck so you can’t run the lathe in reverse as the faceplate will quickly unscrew. It would have been simple to add three M6 locking screws to the collar. I’m now going to have to buy a long series 5mm Drill bit and find a way of extending an M6 tap to do the job myself. Come on Axminster, you can fix this!
