How do you set up a face plate
Hey all, My first post And I'm glade I found this site.
I have a lathe, that I haven't used all to much, And now I want to learn more about It.
I want to bore a 1-5/16" hole In a odd shape 3/4" thick plate
I first looked at my 4 jaw chuck, but when the jaws are closed tight, I wouldn't be able to drill through this plate.
So I dug deep, and I found my face plate, that I have never used, but I think It will hold this piece of plate, so I can drill and then bore to size.
Can you give me some tips on holding flat plate to the face plate?
I'm thinking that there maybe some dogs that slide through the FP slots
And hold It that way?
Thanks In Advance for any Info on this
