I agree! I'll be 100% honest, though and say that I'm going to have to do some research on some of it as I'm not following a few things.

S'alright, I enjoy the research portion of this hobby.

2. I like to use 1 1/2 in 3x3 sq. yellow pine as the main block.
3. Follow the direction on the tap box for drill size, the side going the head stock, I use a relieve hole so the wood sit against the spindle.
4. next I glue a piece of luan 3x3in. to the waste block

Going to make a bowl, make round and clean face and glue waste block to wood. Bowl is done even the finish only thing left is the bottom. Carefully using a parting tool 3/32 thick blade, cut into the luan till the part is severed. Note: need to glue a fresh piece of luan to waste block.

Now going to make a jamb check (mallet head) glue a piece if (w/e) to the waste block. Make hole to snug fit your turn mallet. It turns concentric, will not damage finish. and you can turn a fancy design.
Works every time, the possibilities are endless.
PS I have a small box of waste block cheaper than chucks and every thing is the way I left it nice and round and concentric, no adjustment needed. Ron Marietta Ga
Do you have a link for that? Sorry, I'm a little dense and am having trouble following your directions. If I see it I'm sure it will be clear.

Almost all woodturning vendors sell spindle taps in various sizes. Once cut threads in wood can make your own faceplates, jam chucks etc.

Nothing to be sorry about, google woodcraft, click on tap,picture for you and instruction on drill and taping hole in your waste block.

Visual aid, try a sq piece of styra form, 3x3 in. sq. make hole. insert in your head stock. Other piece of foam say 6 in dia. find center move your tail stock and glue both together. Piece is ready to turn. AH, now I get it.
Repeat step one, small 4 in. disc. glue to waste block, carve out center for your mallet head, nice fit, your first jamb chuck. Jamb chuck means you insert your turn piece onto the opening you just made. I never google (how to make a jamb chuck) need to try that
