    A Machined In Place Precision Lathe Chuck Reference

    I was recently inspired by a YouTube video created by Joe Pieczynski. He demonstrated how to machine stops mounted to the face of his 3 jaw chuck that insured the part's front and back faces were almost perfectly parallel. Great idea but I got cold feet thinking about the holes he wanted me to drill in my chuck. This article describes a variation that is almost as good but does not risk me ruining my chuck.

    Rick,
    This is a great alternative to Joe Pieczynski's method of drill into the chuck. I now use a Gator Brand "TECH-TRU" 6-Jaw chuck most of the time and would prefer using your technique than having to drill holes in this wonderful chuck. Joe's method is impressive and great for production work vs. my hobby machining.
    Thanks for the ideas,
    Paul Jones
