Re: Attaching A Face Plate
There are two or three lines of thought here.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
One says butting against the step is what aligns the faceplate/Chuck. Another says it’s the unthreaded section on the spindle just before the step. But for this you need a tight fit on the registration diameter.
If you do not but up to the step, even if the plate runs true, you take the chance that the plate will move or even get stuck.
If you use a ring it should have parallel faces.
Better to find out what is tight.
Try using Prussian Blue to sort out what is tight.
