Powermatic 90 face plates wanted
Nov 8th, 2013 at 6:14pm
 
Anyone have any surplus 1 1/8X8 LH faceplates for the outboard spindle lying around ? I am also working on getting a reducer made for the inside 1 1/2X8 thread of my chuck to fit this spindle. I'll loctite it into the chuck which will be designated for the outboard end. I do not want a stepped adapter which will move the chuck too far out. I may have to have the chuck body bored for a thicker bush  and then tapped LH. The stock adapters are too hard to do anything with.Any ideas ?
Bill

William --  Sorry I do not have any face plates for you.  You are probably looking for the "hens teeth" of threadings.   

If you use a right hand thread, you can get Nova inserts but would need to lock it down for turning in reverse directions on the outboard.   Custom machine work is the other option with a blank chuck insert.

Good luck with your hunt.

Jim  the link is to a 1 inch 8 thread per inch insert.

NOVA lists the 1-1/8 in a right hand on the tekna tool site.

The blank insert can be cut to the LH thread with a lathe or CNC mill.

Woah, my mistake ! The outboard threads on the P.90 are 1 1/8 x 7 LH. If I had one of the threaded stop collars that hold the outer pulley half on the spindle, I could use it and have a chuck (Barracuda) bored and fitted with it. Maybe even the center of a faceplate. On every list I have been on ( Vintage SAAB, Bugeye,Vespa) there's someone who has an uncommon stash of parts. Unfortunately, the classifieds forum is not frequented by many. Thanks, I appreciate your replies. Bill

I would contact Nova about a custom insert.

At least a 1 1/8 by 7 is a standard thread (RH and LH).   There is a tap made to that size and perhaps you can find a used one.   New taps are in the $200 price range.
