Upgrade this guard from polycarbonate to laminated safety glass. Glass has much better resistance to hot chips and coolants made with ketones or esters.

Lathe Lead Screw Covers, Retractable Safety Blinds

Easy to install lathe lead screw covers.  Accidents happen, and a big screw rotating directly in front of you could be a big entanglement hazard.  These guards are easy to install and offer you peace of mind.


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.
