Lathe Lead Screw Covers, Retractable Safety Blinds

From: $1,266.00

Easy to install lathe lead screw covers.  Accidents happen; 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.


For replacement fabric covers, click Fabric Safety Cover for Machine Guarding.

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 into the machine.   Once you install these, you will provide entanglement protection for the operator.  As a bonus, this lathe lead screw cover protects against steel shavings, chips, and debris landing on the screw.

We also have steel coil covers for smaller lathes.  Please 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 fabric is made of Kevlar fibers (Aramid) and can resist heat from hot chips and chemicals.  The rolling mechanism is fully enclosed in a heavy-duty metal box, thus avoiding pinch points.

You will get a kit of two (2) covers covering the carriage’s left and right sides.

Each lathe lead screw model has two covers installed on the carriage’s left and right sides.  To figure out what size, you need to take the length of the bed and take the closest measurement in the column “Length” above.

It is always better to have more than not enough.  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″).

Is your lathe bigger than the dimensions above?  See our lead screw covers for large lathes by clicking here.

Installation of Lathe Lead Screw Covers

No need to remove the existing lead screw; install these directly over your screws.  You may need to supply your custom-made mounting brackets.  There are many 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.
