TC – Lathe Carriage Chip Shield


This lathe carriage chip shield protects the operator from flying chips, coolant, and other debris from the point of operation on a lathe.


Protect yourself and operators from hazardous projections by using our lathe carriage chip shield.  The point of operation on a lathe is usually near the toolpost.  This guard protects this area from chips, coolant, and other projections.
