Danray Products LLC (Rockford, IL) now offers heavy-duty steel lathe chuck shields that are designed for lathes or similar machines. Lathe chuck shields serve two basic functions: they provide a safeguard between individuals and point-of-operation or rotating hazards and they protect individuals from flying chips, sparks, coolant, lubricant, and other particles. The shield hinges left and rests at a 30 degree angle above the headstock, making it easy to change the chuck or workpiece, says the company; the operator doesn’t need to reach over the chuck to move the shield in and out of position. The front portion of the shield can also be hinged up to change the workpiece.
