Thanks guys :)

Jim R gets the wade swivel slide parts (2 sets, varying conditions, one about 75% scraped in).

Reggie gets the Wade threaded spindle tooling (qty 1 1/4-20 IIRC 7" faceplate, qty 1 blank chuck backplate)

Depending on my buyer's preferences, some other odds and ends might end up being available.

If it's a 1-1/4-20 thread, I'm going to pass. Won't fit my Wade, that why I asked if it was an A2 spindle nose.

Sorry to mistype, its a 7" Wade faceplate for their threaded spindle, covered with factory tapped 1/4-20 holes. Same one as in the catalog discussed a while ago last year.


Wade 8a #407


It is not tooling for a A2 Short Taper DIN 55026 spindle if thats what you mean. I had the impression you were interested in Wade tooling, perhaps for an 8a?

Unmachined chuck backplate is the same- OEM Wade threaded spindle.

Wade did a proprietary quick-release adaptation of the A2 spindle design that they called the "Thread-Lock". Later Model 8A and all (I think) 94 lathes used it. Very hard to find these days.

My Wade 94 Integral Drive has that spindle configuration. Yep! I've been looking for a chuck or backing plate for years.

I use the A1 with an adapter plate , to mount a 3 of 4 jaw. All bolted. a PIA, but it works. I do tend to only do collet work on the Wade.

Same spindle design is on the Wade model 73 which also uses 5C collets.

You're right, I forgot about the 73. Some of them were a standard threaded spindle. I think 5C or 8W collets was an option at the time of purchase. Wade was always a small company, and seems to have been willing to make whatever the customer wanted.

I have serial number books for the 94 and 98 lathes... if you want, PM me the number of your 94 and I'll see if it's in there. Same goes for you, Cal.

8A production records were, unfortunately, thrown out about ten years ago.
