Not sure which lathe you have. Looks like the MH Global. It should the 1MT, with a 3/4×16tpi (3/4” thread with 16 thread count per inch). Hard to find accessories, but some are available. Best would to get a adapter to go from your 3/4”x16tpi to a 1”x8tpi (for the headstock side). Leave the cupped center in the tailstock. With a 1/2 hp motor, you need to take light cuts, don’t be aggressive in turning.

Some mini lathes will have a 1MT (#1 morse taper). Some will have a 2MT (2 morse taper), this is the most poplar and have the most available accessories. The spur center goes on the lathes headstock spindle (the side with the motor). The center point with the cup, goes on the tail sections’ spindle.

There are several woodworking suppliers you could check out. Here’s a list of websites for some of them. pennstateind.com, or ptreeusa.com, or packardwoodworks.com, or rockler.com

Have your say...
