I have just purchased an old craftsman wood lathe model #113.23800 12" lathe. I want to purchase a 3 or 4 jaw chuck. How can i find out what size and thread the spindle is?
For the diameter, just measure the diameter of the outside of the spindle.

For the threads per inch, take a rule and then align e.g. the 1in mark with a thread. Count the number of threads to the next inch and subtrack 1.
