Headstock Lathe Brake.
On many lathes, you can disconnect power from the headstock pulley by easing belt tension, but it usually takes time for the spindle to coast to a stop. Belt drag may prevent it from stopping completely unless a restraining force such as this brake attachment is applied.
These plans were designed for a 9 inch South Bend A lathe. The plans can be applied to most other lathes by altering dimensions.
Four pages ( 3 sheets - front on first and third sheet, front and back on second sheet )
B & W photos, illustrations, expanded views, and instructional narrative.
My plans are from original source materials such as books, magazines and other publications and the pages are carefully removed.
