I would like to finance the purchase of a new lathe part by selling this unwanted item:

Shop made aluminium faceplate (sacrificial plate?) 7.750" diameter. Lathe spindle thread is 1.5" diameter (measured with internal calipers) x 6TPI Whitworth.

I have spent a while googling but so far have been unable to find a lathe that this would fit. Anyone here have any ideas?

I think the Boxford is 8tpi.

Early Harrison L5, (Denham and others maybe?).
Try doing a search on Tony's site for "1.5" x 6 t.p.i." and you will get several possible leads.
