BenchPro wood lathe

My father in law gave me BenchPro wood lathe which I use alot. Does anybody know what brand this is. I have tried looking up benchpro, but no finds. I would like to find a face plate and chucks for this lathe, but don't know if any other brands will work on this lathe. The lathe is almost new as my father in law did not use it. I assume it is an off brand or sub brand to a larger manufacturer. Any help would be appreciated.

Bench Pro wood lathe

Hi I checked around myself and couldn't come up with who makes it or anything else.but as for faceplates and chucks,all you have to do is find out what thread size the headstock is and get a faceplate or chuck to fit it.It could be 3/4 x 16 or 1 x 8 or even 1 1/4 x 8,but I doubt that.These are the most common sizes.PSI has some good prices on face plates a Chucks.

God Bless all

Thanks Woodsman-I will try that. I assume BenchPro is just an off brand, but it does do well in turning. Has a 4 speed step down. I have turned straight stock, but have a bowl project I want to try. I will measure the headstock and get the thread size. Thanks for you input.

BenchPro wood lathe

Good luck with your new toy.Some folks do quite well with those little after market tools.Just don't try to overwork it as they are usually not well built an may break fairly easy.

God Bless all

Model # might help...

Chances are pretty good it matches up to SOMETHING else. Standard threads, tapers and whatnot... You might be able to find the MFG or owners manual that can tell you what it takes...

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com

I run a mini Jet Lathe with a 8TPI spinlde mount. I purchased a baracuda2 chuck set from a seller on ebay. I was very pleased with the price and quality.
