This Spindle Work Stop (Also known as a Drawbar Stop) is a tool that is used as a parts stop in a lathe spindle or draw tube for quick setups, enabling accuracy or consistency of linear dimensions. Place the workpiece in a chuck or collet and set the proper length. Insert the work stop into the rear of spindle or draw tube. Expand your fingers using the supplied T-handle wrench until they touch the spindle, then back off the screw a quarter turn. Using the T-wrench, slide the work stop into the spindle until it contacts with the workpiece. Tighten the work stop and remove the wrench.
To choose the correct size of Spindle Stop, measure the ID of your draw tube or spindle. If the ID dimension is at the maximum diameter (Example: 2.00”), then you would choose the stop that max’s out at 2.00” (Part# 44008). All of these Spindle Stops will expand approximately .065” past their max OD. If you are still not certain which stop is correct for your application, e-mail us the ID diameter of your spindle and we will get back to you with the correct part #.
Easy Installation – For use on CNC and Manual lathes.
