I started out turning everything with a spur drive and only changed to a faceplate when I ran into a very punky piece of wood. I have never thought about the screw until brought up in another recent post.
I do have a screw drive which came with my chuck but have never used it.
Other than punky wood, what other cautions should I be aware of? I watched Stu's video, on a larger piece of wood should the top be flattened so chuck jaws will sit flat on the wood?
I want to give it a go next weekend so any suggestions/precautions will be appreciated.
