Didn't work for me either. So, at a guess, it is used to burn your initials in your under garments after they have been removed from the washer and dryer. Just sayin'

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

It didn't work because he crammed the smily up against the URL. Remove the bit after aspx and you get this:
http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/200...nk-Insert.aspx

Some lathe chucks - in this case the Nova chucks, come with a certain sized threaded hole in the middle, and then you have to pay extra to get an insert to adapt it to fit your lathe. My guess is that the blank would be for people who have some oddball sized lathe spindle that Nova doesn't make an insert for. Those people have to buy the blank insert and then have someone drill/thread it to fit their lathe.

Insert witty signature line here.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Looks like you screw it into your Nova chuck. It has different threads on the inside and outside so that you can put a 1 1/4" 8TPI chuck on a 1" 8TPI spindle.

It screws in from the front of the chuck?? Makes no sense to me.

Sheesh, unless you hired someone to machine the threads on the inside I would really hesitate to make this a do-it-yourself type project. I have talked to people who have odd threads on thier lathe spindle, like 7/8" - 16 or something a little different that they don't make adapters for so if you want to use that chuck, you would need that adapter set up with the correct threads for your spindle.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

I kind of liked my suggestion.
