    New Chuck Plate

    I picked this up from Jerry Marcentel over on SMC. It is a very nice piece of kit. Absolutely great for roughing out. Quick to use as you grab it with your chuck, plus it came with some Desert Ironwood and some spalted Palo Verde.

    Very cool. Looks like a real handy addition to the setup.

    Neat idea, I guess it's like a very large, multi point drive center that is used with your four jaw chuck....?

    Yes, very cool indeed!

    Re: New Chuck Plate

    Wow i would not have thought that would be secure enough. Can you say what diameter that is. Looking at your chuck in the pic it looks huge.
    Thanks for showing it.

    Stuart, I like to think of it as a jam chuck with teeth. The nice thing is, it won't spin on you and dig into your wood.

    Rob, It's very secure, one of the gents on another site roughs out logs with this, 17"x6" hollow forms. The diameter is about 6" I think.

    I was watching a video a few night ago of a young Irish turner, forget his name right now, that used something similar for his bowl turning... he used a center hold and his chuck plate had two or 3 spikes like yours.... he turned 12-15 inch bowls, spinning at 1800 rpms to rough them out... looked very efficient and a little scary to me...

    Rob, you'd be surprised how secure something like Nate's chuck plate can be. Heck, I've been very pleasantly surprised at the weight and diameter the Oneway Big Bite chuck spur can hold securely, and it's making contact over a smaller area than the chuck plate. Those two bladed "spurs" only penetrate into the wood 1/8" or so, and I've yet to have a large (or small) blank slip on me...even when the mounting surface isn't nice and flat.

    I can see the use. But how do you get it perzactly centered?
