Sizing information

Each lathe lead screw model below comes in a set of two covers to be installed on the left and right side of the carriage. To figure out what size you need take the length of the bed and take the closest measurement in the column A below.

 

Example: You measure an 84" bed on your lathe. The closest measurement in column A is 79" (model AR2000), however a better option would be the model AR3000. It is always better to have more than not enough

 

Note that the width of the carriage should be taken into account and allow for some length leeway. Care must be taken to choose a model that is not undersized or the lead screw guard mechanism will be damaged if the carriage is moved to the far left or right.
