About the Spindle Handwheel

The spindle handwheel was designed to make the task of controlling the spindle easier. With it, you can quickly stop the spindle or turn it by hand to tap a thread or inspect a part.

The handwheel mounts on the end of the spindle shaft and looks and works much like a sewing machine handwheel. It allows the operator to quickly and safely stop a rotating spindle by hand. It also makes it easy to hand index the spindle when working on a part. A black oxide finish was not used because the smooth, machined surface offers a better feel on your hand.


The improper use of machine tools and their accessories can result in serious injury. Before using this tool, thoroughly read the instructions and make sure you understand its proper and safe use.


Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
