I bought this Walker-Turner Lathe back in 1976 at a surplus auction at the college I was attending. It was old then, but I am still using it and with the original motor. I have 2 face plates for the inboard spindle but I need one for the outboard side. My question is how do I determine the size needed,(it is left hand threads) I am guessing it is a 1” with 12 TPI. But how do I know for sure, and also how do you determine whether it is a #1 or #2 Morse taper for the centers. And finally, where can i get this left hand thread face plate? Thanks for any info.
