    Default What are rings from SuperSpacer

    These rings came with my Tormach SuperSpacer 6". I have no idea what they're for; there's nothing in the operator's manual. Anyone know?

    I don't have a super spacer but I believe that those are masking disks for the 24 position indexing plate. Search the Practical Machinist website for "How to Mount a Masking Plate/Super Spacer" or try https://tinyurl.com/wyb7kad

    I see. So you'd use those if you were using the SuperSpacer manually and not controlling with CNC.

    For no particular reason I installed the blank one "no notches" that way the lock has no place to lock. Not installing one at all does the same thing and I don't think the lever can engage anything to damage the unit either way.

    Those plates predate cnc, but when doing production and drilling holes at standard increments, you can do it super fast manually. If your super spacer isn't CNC driven, they are still super handy for that purpose.
