DIY Chuck Holding System
By Paul Rohrbacher


Using a scroll chuck on your wood lathe is a wonderful way to hold your turning projects. But if you decide to reverse your lathe to take advantage of right side hollowing or even something as simple as reverse sanding, things can quickly go horribly wrong if your chuck starts to loosen and unscrew. In an attempt to address this issue, several manufacturers have installed grub screws on the back of their chucks which fit into a shallow recess in the lathe spindle to help stop this problem. But if your chuck is not so equipped or you want additional support, what do you do?
