Problem using a chuck
I purchased a Oneway Talon Chuck. I turned a square 2” x 2” x 14” piece of hardwood into a cylinder. The cylinder diameter was the maximum possible with the piece of wood.
Problem: After one, sometimes two, passes the wood would be loose in the chuck. I would tighten the heck out of it, repeat the action, and get the same loose wood result.
I had previously turned a similar piece from the same piece of wood and had no problems. However, I was using a center drive with teeth instead of a chuck.
I could not feel any flex in the wood in either case. Of course being a newbe to turning there could have been flex I would not know it.
Where did I go wrong?
Thanks for your response in advance and
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
