Highland recently added new faceplates from Easy Wood Tools! I am excited to have another affordable option for quality faceplates. These are anodized aluminum faceplates for 1”x8 tpi and 1-¼”x 8 tpi lathes. The thread size is etched on the face plate which makes it easy to identify the faceplates. The diameters range from 2” up to 4-½ “. Each plate has 8 large screw holes for a more secure attachment to the blank. They also have set screws for reverse sanding and a 5/16” hole for use with a spanner rod (tommy bar or knockout rod)which makes it easy to remove the faceplate from the spindle. I have enjoyed using two Easy Wood Tools for my large lathe for some time. I will order at least two for my small lathe and dedicate one to my sanding disks so no more swapping face plates!
