This bigger chuck does let me do many more things. But it also shows me that if I want to do bigger things, it's time to look at buying a bigger lathe.

The article/posting at:

I didn't do the mounting like the posting said, I used a face plate that I purchased when I got the lathe. I just laid out the pattern on the face plate and drill the hole accordingly.

Works great and adds a new dimension to this little lathe.
