I was given some 2 x6 oak that was part of some piece of furniture. I cut all the dados out, pulled all the nails and screws out, and cut around to make pieces.
I glued a one inch block of hardwood to the 2 inch block, so I can screw the glue block into the face plate, so I can play with it, see if I can make anything resembles a plate or low bowl.
I was looking around for really, really cheap chucks just for my cheapo lathe, and IM a bit confused between face plates vs chuck plates.
I can mount a chuck on certain face plates but not on other, need chuck plate. Are they the same thing?does is depend strictly on hole alignment on plate as to whether or not it will hold a certain chuck?
