>In "Hollow Forms the Easy Way", Lyle Jamieson tells me he does not recommend a chuck for hollow forms. He says a faceplate is the safest (or only) way to go, to keep the wood from flying off. However, in "Turning Wood", Richard Raffan states "Never use a faceplate for centerwork - screws grip poorly into endgrain." That makes sense, but who should I believe? :) I'll be recieving my John Lea deluxe hollowing system soon, and I need to decide what policy to adopt (due to a deadline looming, I also don't have time for months of experimentation). Thanks everyone for being so great and answering my questions. :)
