A lot of good advice here!
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.If I may, I do believe I have solved the how too, in holding wood and finish product in the head stock, at a reasonable price.No spindles please.
1. woodcraft sells a tap to the configuration of my spindle (jet)1 in. 10tpi
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
Nothing to be sorry about, google woodcraft, click on tap,picture for you and instruction on drill and taping hole in your waste block.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.
