These heavy-duty 14-gauge steel lathe chuck shields are
designed for lathes or similar machines. They serve two basic functions: (1) they provide a safeguard between individuals and point-of-operation or rotating hazards, and (2) they protect individuals from flying chips, sparks, coolant, lubricant, and other particles. The mounting bracket attaches to the face of the headstock. The shield hinges left and rests at a 45° angle above
headstock, making it easy to change or adjust the chuck or
workpiece. The operator doesn’t need to reach over the chuck
to move the shield in and out of position, and the shield will
not interfere with lathes that have a rear guard/backsplash.
Our unique point-of-operation-opening safety scale can quickly check the point-of-operation opening for no safeguard required in accordance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.217(c)(1)(ii) as well as applicable ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) machine safety standards.
