Turning

Subject:
Lathe accessory, Sub-faceplate balance ring?

Keith Newton
For years, I've been contemplating making a balancing plate that would fasten to the backside of my faceplate. Is there already something on the market for this. I would doubt that I could find one to fit mine, but it would be nice to see what others had come up with.

While my lathe weighs 1500#, it would always be nice to be able to spin a little faster in the beginning before getting a big blank rounded, or when doing offset stuff.
