The index plate has 60 1/8" diameter holes around the rim, three countersunk holes for mounting to the pulley, and either a 3/4" center hole, or a 1.1" center hole to clear the lathe spindle. I supply 3 #6 screws for mounting to the pulley. I now have 50 hole plates for the same price, please specify when ordering.
Price: $35.00 with free US priority mail. (Other shipping contact me, I will ship to the UK, Canada and Australia)
Although I previously sold a complete kit including the pin and block that locks the pin, I have found it uneconomical to do so. I am now only selling the index plate itself, with mounting screws, but without the index pin and block. You can easily make one yourself, or come up with a spring loaded plunger, etc.

Here are the dimensions of the 60 hole index plate. Dimensions may vary somewhat.
The center hole is now 1.1" so it fits the new spindle.
You will need to make a transfer punch and a Centering Plug to mount
the index plate to the pulley.
(both items not included with the kit)
I now provide 3, 1/8" holes spaced equally with the countersunk holes so you can use a standard 1/8" transfer punch instead of making your own .14" one.
The centering plug dimension should now be 1.1" rather than .75" as I have changed the design to fit the new spindle.

The plate has three rows of holes, 1/8" diameter. I am only offering it with a 1.1" center hole, but it can still be used on the older lathes with no problems.
