Lathe chuck guards

The lathe chuck guard prevents the operator’s hand or clothing from getting caught in the chuck while it is turning. For additional security, the chuck guard is designed in such a way that one cannot “forget” the spindle key in place by omission. These guards are available for manual centring lathes of different sizes and the type of guard to be used is selected according to the size of the lathe and its maximum workpiece diameter. Chuck guards are always equipped with a microswitch.
