Does anyone know what the chuck thread is for a Rexon TB 900 wood lathe please, a friend has just bought the wrong back plate for a oneway chuck and she needs to exchange it for the right one, now I think it is 1" x 8TPI but am not too sure.

Thanks in anticipation.

The Rexon lathes were never that popular in the UK Pierre - they do look very similar to the Axminster/Delta/Nu-Tool/Draper/Charnwood clones all of which had a 1" x 8tpi thread.


I think that you have just confirmed my suspicions Walter, thanks; I assume that one measures the outside diameter (of the thread) and counts the number of thread peaks within an inch?

Just to confirm this as I've just purchased a Rexon TB 900 second-hand and the thread is inch-8. If you want to know the exact speed your lathe is turning at and it hasn't got a readout, this is quite a simple and cheap method.
