    After I get it back together that will probably be one of my 1st projects with the lathe... making a 2nd backplate for my 4 jaw. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions as I've never attempted this...

    Thank you Joe. That means a lot. Well, perseverance finally paid off! I upgraded the clamping bar for a 3rd time, this time i used a 1x1x48 solid bar. Also beefed up the beater bar across the face of...

    After grinding excess material away from the rectangular hole on the face of the backplate I determined that it wasn't a set screw. There was definitely a dimple from a drill mark in there but no...

    Joe was right. No screw I grinded away material from around the hole on the face & it's the same material. Paolo mentioned a boss or something possibly when the plate was manufactured. It's possible...

    Good advice. At this point I'm already this far into it with the spindle holding tool I'll keep trying. I have a copy of the the original purchase record that leblond was kind enough to send me. The...

    I suppose this might be a topic for another thread but this is probably going to be the easiest option at this point. My concern would be drilling & tapping the mounting holes for the chucks through...

    I think it might be keyed. There was dimple on the outer rim of the backing plate where the previous owner had attempted to use a drift to tap off the back plate at some point. The metal had really...

    I thought about this. I looked around the back of the faceplate for a pin or lock screw for a key but didn't see anything. I looked around the outside of the spindle face too & didn't see anything....
