Install these lathe lead screw covers on your machine to prevent entanglements. The lead screw on a lathe turns rapidly and is directly in front of the operator. There is a chance that a piece of clothing can get caught up in the threads and start pulling someone in. Once you install these, you will provide entanglement protection for the operator. As an added bonus, this lathe lead screw cover also protects steel shavings, chips and debris landing on the screw.
We also have steel coil covers for smaller lathes. Take a look at them by clicking here.
Our Lathe Lead Screw Cover Features
Our model AR lathe lead screw covers kit is designed to protect the lead screw on lathes and other machinery. The rolling mechanism is fully enclosed in a heavy-duty metal box thus avoiding pinch points. The fabric is made of Kevlar fibres (Aramid) and can resist heat from hot chips, and chemicals.
You will get a kit of two (2) covers, which cover the left and right sides of the carriage.

Each lathe lead screw model 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 to take the length of the bed and take the closest measurement in the column “Length” above.
Example: You measure an 80″ bed on your lathe. The closest measurement in column “Length” is 78″ (model AR2000), however, a better option would be the model AR3000 (118″). It is always better to have more than not enough.
Is your lathe bigger than the dimensions above? Take a look at our lead screw covers for large lathes by clicking here.
Installation of Lathe Lead Screw Covers
No need to remove the existing lead screw, just install these directly over top of your screws. You may need to supply your own custom made mounting brackets. There are tons of lathe makes and models and we can’t possibly have a “one-size-fits-perfect” solution. However, from our experience, these covers can fit on almost every lathe out there. You can always call us if you need some installation help.
