Stuck Face Plate

Ruth Niles
>I just searched the archives for how to remove a chuck or face plate that stuck on the spindle. There are lots of posts on how to avoid this but what do you do when it happens? I just had a piece on a face plate and while I was parting it in the middle, the piece jammed and really tightened the face plate so I cannot physically move it. I also did what someone else had posted; used the index pin to hold the spindle and broke it.

Any suggestions?
