    We are on the coast in Rio Canoa, just east of Canoa, Manabi. Manta is about 85 km south of us. If you find your way down, please look me up.

Don't forget to skim the adaptor after mounting it to the spindle before fitting the chuck. The adaptor will be much cheaper than buying another DI6 made for 4 jaw chucks.
        Thanks for the info. I think that I will start off with 1.25" plate. I have a dealer down here that can laser cut and I will probably order at 12.5 inch just so I can true it up. I have been pondering the processes that I will make and the only thing I can think of is boring a significantly sized center hole and using a big bolt to be able to chuck in my 10 inch 3 jaw. I will probably order up two pieces of plate, just in case, hehehehe

          Ok, after watching the video, I am very intrigued. I will need to layout the bolt holes so that I don't conflict with the cam lock studs....hope everything lines up. Thanks for the video

            That's super cool, I'll definitely hit you up once our plans become a little more definite

              Make the adaptor fit onto the DI and then machine it on the lathe until the chuck fits it. The chuck mounting threaded holes can come last.

                Perfect! After sitting at the table contemplating my steps, that is exactly what I am going to do. Thanks for the advice

                  If you ran one you'd be fond of it. I have one and it is a great lathe.
