These adapters allow you to mount your CBN sharpening wheels onto your lathe shaft for slow speed grinding (you can turn your lathe WAY down) using either your tool rest as a support post, or you can mount your sharpening jigs to the lathe. The 5/8″ shaft accepts most CBN wheels. The end of the mandrel is designed to accept your tailstock live center for support – USE THIS.
IMPORTANT – KEEP YOUR LATHE SPEED BELOW 2000 RPM.
These are available to mount to 1-1/4″ x 8tpi and 1″ x 8tpi shafts. We also sell adapters which will allow you to adapt the 1″ x 8tpi model to M33, 7/8″ x 14tpi, 3/4″ x 16tpi, and 5/8″ Plainbore (Shosmith)
