Re: Reverse operation with 10k screw spindle
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Since I have a Heavy 10L with taper attachment apparently the need to mount a parting tool upside down behind the lathe with the spindle turning in reverse isn't required. Although I must say, parting off is still a bit scary.
But other than that, why does one need to run the spindle in reverse at all?

If your work is less than 1/2” in diameter use a 3C collet, or 5/8" with a 6K collet.
I have also seen small chucks mounted to a collet or Morse taper.
I used to have a couple.

I run threaded chucks in reverse quite often. Never had one come off.
