Danray Products LLC recently introduced 12″, 18″ and 24″ 14-gauge steel lathe chuck shields. They will work for lathes, or other, similar machines, to provide a safeguard against point-of-operation or rotating hazards, and to protect from flying chips, sparks, coolant, lubricant and other particles. The mounting bracket attaches to the face of the headstock and the shield hinges left and rests at a 45 degree angle above the headstock, making it easy to change or adjust the chuck or workpiece. The operator doesn’t need to reach over the chuck to move the shield in and out of position, and the shield will not interfere with lathes that have a rear guard/backsplash. The shields are priced at $315 for the shield for 12″ and smaller chucks (item SHD-2312LSF), $325 for the shield for 18″ and smaller chucks (item SHD-2914LSF), and $397 for the shield for 24″ and smaller chucks (item SHD-4016LSF).
