    Cool How To True Up a Metal Lathe Face Plate

    I true up the new face plate for my large Metal Lathe. The face plate is made of cast iron and seems to have never been used. The run-out is not to bad but needs to be setup for my lathe and to turn true on my lathe. So it is important to face it off on my lathe so it is usable. This is something that is very doable in the home shop.
