    So simple. So clever. So brilliant. Thank you. I have a 6" diameter aluminum plate
    that I have pondered how to mount on my old Atlas 618 lathe to machine down
    and your design and holding it with the 4 jaw chuck extended is perfect.
    I added some rosin to the plate and it insures high friction. The rosin application
    comes from instructions for rifle barrel removal where the barrel is held in a
    vise-block of hardwood with rosin*. Then when torque is applied by the barrel removing
    tool there is no slippage. Best wishes.

    Thanks Cascao,
    You have beaten me to it I was going to post the same thing, I have one a little smaller in dia that I use for machining steel plates. It also can provide extra support when you do not want a centre. Still pays to keep your head out of the way.
    Double sided tape can be useful.
    Regards

    I believe the first time I seen anything that resembled that was Marv's tail stock alignment tools. They were a little bit smaller but one in the chuck and the other one on the live center tail stock. Very nice and there is another toy I gotta to have.
