Subject:
How many faceplate threads should be engaged?

Dale Sherman - Pompey, NY
>I bought a 3" faceplate to use with my General 26020, but Oneway makes them with the first 1/2" without threads, so it only catches about four threads before it is fully seated. Is this enough or should I buy faceplates other than the Oneway? I have the same problem with the Oneway adapter for my Stronghold chuck, only four threads engage before the adapter is bottomed out on the shoulder of the spindle.
