I like to use nylon washers behind my chucks and faceplates to keep them from binding onto the spindle. Makes removal easier. But, with my new Grizzly lathe and it's 1 1/4" spindle I had a temporary problem. None of the local stores carried 1 1/4" nylon washers. Come to the rescue. J. Collazzo
http://www.turncrafts.com/ from one of my penturning forums, sells interesting and useful items that other vendors seem to overlook. I bought six 4"X4"X1/8" delrin sheets from him at a very reasonable price. Used a Forstner bit to cut my 1 1/4" holes, then shaped them (very crudely) to round on the bandsaw. Voila, I have no-bind washers and delrin left over for future projects like this.
