Shear pin
Replacement
the longitudinal leadscrew is secured to the con-
necting collar of the gearing in the headstock with
the use of a soft-metal tapered shear pin (see
Figure 90). the shear pin is designed to break
and disengage power to the leadscrew to help
protect more expensive lathe components if you
crash your carriage or take too large of a cut and
overload the lathe.
