Subject:
faceplate vs. 4 jaw chuck

ken chase
>In the short time I've been turning I came to the conclusion for hollowform work or deep bowls the 4 jaw chuck just doesn't cut it. I bought a good and expensive one (Vicmark) but my piece shimmies loose. The faceplate doesn't. Am I missing something? Am I wrong? Please straighten me out. I just lost a really nice piece I spent a lot of time preparing to hollow.
Thanks
