Sample text

Plate (often known as a "bowl chuck") will serve you much better. Because the base of a knob or a bowl should be about one-third its widest dimension, it would be next to impossible to turn the base on a 6-in. faceplate, unless the work is more than 1 8 in. dia. Most bowl chucks have only three holes around the circumference. It's a good idea to drill and countersink an extra hole between each of the originals for a total of six. This allows you to use six screws in demanding situations, thereby greatly increasing the holding power of the faceplate.

Special-Purpose Chucks ome manufacturers have jaws for S highly specialized purposes. When shopping for a chuck, it is good to see how the jaws offered by a prospective manufacturer fit in with what you plan to turn. Centers and faceplates are the two basic ways of holding work on the lathe. They'll cope with the majority of your turning requirements; indeed, you could turn for a lifetime using nothing more. There are times, how­ ever, when other chucking methods can make life easier. Special-purpose chucks can be invaluable for grabbing odd-shaped work, small work, and finished work that requires modification.

It is easy and much quicker than stop­ ping and starting the motor. Steb centers come in I -in. and Vz-in. sizes, which are measured by the diameter of the serrated ring. I would not work without either. The I -in. steb center handles normal-sized furniture parts well, while the liz-in. size is perfect for knobs and other small items. A steb center only works well on prepared billets (with square ends) of reasonable size; a 3-in. square table leg is about the biggest it can handle. If work is taken off of the lathe, rechucking is much easier with a steb center because it tends to center more accurately than a normal drive center.
