>How many times do you reuse the same screws in your faceplate turnings? Yesterday I was turning a big heavy blank of about 35 lbs. when it popped into my head that I have never changed screws in my faceplate. I use a soft start and soft stop method, but I would think that during the roughing stage, the screws would still take a pretty good beating. I would guess that I've been using the same screws for over three years. I think its time I change them out.
