Wood Lathe Boring

armstrong44 created the topic: Wood Lathe Boring

I just watched a you-tube video of Charles Neal boring a hole with a forstner bit into the end grain of what looked like a 4x4 that he would later turn for part of a bed post. Can anyone tell me how one sets it into the lathe for turning with a 1" hole in the center of one end?

Thanks!

Charles Neal calls it a jamb chuck. It's just a temporary plug that you can stick into the 1" hole and then mount it into your lathe.

You can also mount a wood plate on the end of the 4x4 with screws or just glue.

is the plug glued in ?? how does it not spin in the hole, theres a lot of torque on a small spindle

No, he doesn't glue it. It looks like he's using a live center in the video. In another video he turned the piece around and using a dowel tenon in the hole, he chucked it in the lathe chuck. :-)
