Greetings fellow woodworkers,
I will be upgrading soon to a Jet1642 lathe as my current Jet 1236 lathe is no longer sufficient for my needs. I am seriously thinking of taking the motor/gearbox/headstock assembly off of my 1236 and making it into a variable speed grinding system.
My question is this:
The 1236 has a 1”x8 TPI spindle. I need to buy a adaptor to convert this to a 5/8” or 3/4” keyed shaft. Where do I purchase a 1”x8 TPI female to shaft adaptor?
I’ve tried the industrial supply catalogs but could not find anything. Don’t know if this would be a custome made adaptor I should go to a local machine shop to get fabricated.
Thanks in advance for any direction this forum can provide!
