Purchase this lathe guarding system as a kit to bring your lathe up to safety standards by adding guards such as chip shields. In addition, this kit comes complete with safety components to guard the three main areas of a lathe: the leadscrew, the chuck, and the carriage. Adding these three safety components will help protect operators from the hazards generated by machinery such as lathes.
We get hundreds of reported amputations, lacerations, crushing injuries, and abrasions each year due to using a lathe. These guards will help prevent many accidents on a lathe, including burns from chip ejections, the lathe pulling someone in, and accidental chuck ejections, to name a few.
