Re: Heavy Ten conversion to L00

Why would one waist all the this time to convert. I bean in machining over 50 years never had a chuck come of in reverse. Yes i machined in reverse many times never had a problem. The chuck was installed properly.

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.

Could I perhaps ask a really dumb question.
I've got a South Bend Heavy 10L lathe. Spindle is threaded for the chucks and faceplate.
What's an L00 and why convert?
