Chucking and Mounting Wood on Your Lathe
Wednesday, March 10, 2021, 7:00 AM until 8:30 PM
Demonstration / Workshop
You just got your first lathe. Let’s learn about how to properly and safely mount wood so you can begin making chips. In this program, I’ll show you different methods of mounting spindles between centers. Then we will explore face grain and bowl blank mounting methods. After you turn a bowl, how do you finish the bottom? We’ll look at jam chucks, plate jaws, donut chucks and vacuum chucks. We’ll wrap up with introducing you to friction drives, collet chucks and a few other interesting methods of mounting wood on your lathe.
