SB1388 6” 1-1/2” x 8 Back Plate 01/14/2018 12:00:53 PM

Purchased SB1388 6 1-1/2 x 8 back plate for my SB 9 lathe. Plate is nicely made from close-grained cast iron. 1 1/2 x 8tpi thread nicely cut, screwed onto my headstock ok. Only needed 4 diameter so the extra material gave me good experience with bit types and cutting angles. Drilled and threaded nicely with no hard spots encountered. I would buy this plate again.
