Re: Heavy Ten conversion to L00
Interesting. My L1 does not require a hook. The nut is wide enough to push the chuck off without it.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Ah. So if you just loosened the nut you're still left with the chuck stuck onto the taper. If the hook is flipped up behind the nut then the nut can't move towards the headstock so it pushes the chuck towards the tailstock. And that releases it from the tape.
