Thanks for the link Steve. I've seen those drawings before. But I don't understand why the photos show that hook that pivots. If the L00 just has a nut that is turned onto the threaded part of the chuck to pull the chuck tightly onto the taper, what's the hook for?

Suggest you google ‘L00 lathe spindle nose’ and you will find chart with dimensions and a cross section. The chuck fits onto a male taper, is driven by a key, and there is a locking ring that gets secured on the back of the chuck with a spanner wrench. I think it allows the spindle to be run in reverse without fear of a chuck or faceplate coming loose as is the case with a plain threaded spindle nose.
