First Glaser screw chuck project.

I recieved my Glaser screw chuck last week so of course I had to take it for a spin. I have to say, that thing is one rock solid screw chuck. I had no idea a screw chuck could be so stable. Anyway, I decided to turn a platter. The segmented ring had been laying around the shop for years so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to put it to use. To turn off the tenon from the bottom I used my vacuum chuck. It's a little over 12" in diamater, a little less than 1/8" thick and weighs 5.4 ounces. I turned it entirely using the Mini Glaser QR tools. To eliminate the checking that is so common with spalted maple, I used the round edge scraper up side down as a negative rake scraper. It removed all of the checking & tear out perfectly. Please enjoy.

First off beautiful bowl.

Is this screw chuck basically a right hand wist wood screw that bites into a predrilled hole and holds the wood against the small face plate?

If so how do you get rid of the screw hole on the finished project?

Thanks everyone. The screw hole is on the front of the platter. I glue a tenon on to the bottom of the platter. Once I turn the bottom using the screw chuck on the face, I can use my oneway chuck to reverse the platter. The Glaser screw chuck has an adjustable back plate which can be used as a depth stop. To remove the tenon I use my oneway vacuum chuck. Now there's no sign of how it was attached to the lathe. Here are some pics, hope this helps.


I have 2 sizes of these back plates, a 3" & a 5-3/4"
