    How much wood would a metal lathe chuck, if a metal lathe chuck could chuck wood?

    Nice card!

    Nice 3 jaw tree stand, there may be more sense in that than I first thought, 3 jaw tree stands that adjust easily, tree stands are sorely lacking in my opinion,
    Nice card,

    Mine has that. Independent three jaw! It has three bolts that screw inform the sides to hold the tree (above the water line) to hold the tree and adjust for straight. I added a small spike in the bottom and drill a hole up into tree. Been using it for 26 years.

    My problem is that if I saw that I'd suddenly start lusting for a lathe big enough to take a chuck of that implied sort of size....

    I got this from a customer some years ago, a bit Brit related but you get the point.
