Steel Lathe Chuck Shields
December 9, 2013
Danray Products LLC, Rockford, Ill., recently introduced 12-, 18- and 24-in. steel lathe chuck shields. These 14-gauge steel lathe chuck shields provide individuals a safeguard from point-of-operation hazards and protection from flying chips, sparks, coolant, lubricant and other particles.
The mounting bracket attaches to the face of the headstock. The shield hinges to the left and rests at a 45-degree angle above the headstock, making it easy to change or adjust the chuck or workpiece. The shield will not interfere with lathes that have a rear guard/backsplash. These shields comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.212 and ANSI B11.6 safety standards.
