Re: Maybe There's a Better Way...

>Doug, I recess an area of the foot a little larger than the faceplate. Besides looking good, it makes it easy to center the faceplate. However, I have an accurate way to center the faceplate. Turn a piece of hardwood with a morse taper to fit your tailstock, turn a spigot with shoulder, that fits inside the faceplate opening, mount the faceplate, complete with tape, then slide the tailstock up to the platter base, then back it off. Voila, the faceplate is attached and centered. The platter still needs to be removed and the faceplated clamped on for a couple of minutes.
