    Lathe Chuck Spacers

    How many times do you use lathe chuck spacers? How do you keep all of the spacers in place whilst aligning the workpiece in the chuck?

    My solution was to use a very thin layer of wax, I used Mini-Hold designed for the dolls house world.

    I think this is a neat solution for lathe chuck spacers.

    I'm sure there are many other applications for this.

    How is it on thickness, assuming you want all 3 spacers exactly the same height?

    You can make it very thin, I made it unreadable on a manual micrometer (measured two spacers, added wax and measured again) by rubbing two spacers together. The surface is still very sticky and holds really well.

    There is wax on the surface of these spacers. The tackiness is similar to post-it notes.
