I come to you guys once again for a problem solving, if you can call it that. If any of you and I KNOW you are turners, please assist me with a problem. When I put the Base Plate onto the machine and turn a piece, then sand it ready for the final stages, I go to take it off and it seizes up and it takes sometimes 3 STRONG people to get the darn thing unscrewed. How can this be prevented?

We have tried putting a washer behind the plate to no avail. I am sure there is a perfect logical explaination, but for the life of me I don't know what it is. We have tried pre-spraying it before screwing it on, we have cut a plastic washer and put between the machine, washer & base plate, sometimes it works great other times, it does not. I am at my wits end over this and just would like to be able to screw the darn thing on get on with my project and take it off and carry on with the next, but I am having to spend so much time getting it off it's ridiculously aggravating.

Thanks in advance to anyone and everyone who will help me solve this.
