Hi,

I'm getting back into turning after sometime away, and I'm really on the novice level. My question is regarding chucks and faceplates. I know that the Mark V does not have the ability to run a vacuum hose through the stock. I have just turned a 9-10" bowl, and now wish to hold it from the inside to finish the bottom. What's the most efficient and economical hardware to purchase to do that?
Thanks!

Marty

Hi,

I'm not an expert in this sort of thing but I was lead to Cole jaw set for my Nova G3 chuck. Since I have no idea what equipment you have I have no idea if this idea will be helpful.

You can see what they look like here:

or go to the Nova site here:

Hope some other chime in with more ideas for you.

A lot of turners create what is commonly called a "friction fit chuck." You take another piece of wood mounted on a face plate and cut it slightly larger than the lip of your bowl. Taper it about 3-4 degrees so that the lip of your bowl just fits. You can then just press it on more tightly so it doesn't come off when you turn off the lathe (a little chalk dust helps hold it on too). If you are worried about it coming off, use a small, round piece of wood pressed against the bottom by your tail stock.
