Subject:
Soon-to-be-bowl??? *PIC*

>Here's a shot of a blank that has the propensity to become an 18" bowl. The blank is green... I want to turn it to finish, so it will do funny things to itself while drying out. I don't know what it weighs, but I'm going to ask for help to lift it up to the lathe. I think it's probably 70 or 80 pounds. (I don't have a faceplate larger than 3".)
My question is this: Will a 3" Oneway face plate, with 8 #12 2" wood screws hold it?
