The large steel lathe chuck shields are made of fabricated 18-gauge steel with reinforced sides. They can be used on lathes that have chucks up to 47-inches in diameter. They are double hinged for access to the chuck, workpiece, and tool. The front hinged portion can be swung up for workpiece changes, and the entire shield can be hinged back for changing chucks.
Each shield is furnished with a mounting rod, plate and support bar for mounting the shield to the face of the headstock. The rear mounting bracket hinges the entire shield, and the side mounting bracket supports the shield in its normal operating position.
