    Rockwell/Delta wood lathe

    I have a rockwell/Delta wood lathe and I need help. I want to put a wooden wheel on the spindle end at the motor end. The spindle working end has a 1" x 8" spindle end. On the opposite end, where I want to add a wheel, nothing with a 1" x 8" will screw on the spindle. Does it have left hand threads? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, zetuskid

    The outboard is a 1" 8 TPI LH thread. Suggest you purchase a LH Delta 3" or 6" faceplate (some are LH AND RH) and add a turned wood disk to it.

    If you look carefully at the photo, you can see from the slope of the thread that this is a left hand thread. In all things like this, just imagine whether or not the tool offered up to the job is trying to tighten or loosen the the chuck. The torque produced by the tool must always be attempting to tighten it.
