    lathe register template and storage unit

    first up is a register template for making new adaptor plates to fit my lathe so i dont need to keep taking chuck off to check fit.
    my lathe only comes with std 3 jaw chuck and only accessorie they sell is a 4 jaw at more than double cost of others.
    its got an odd size chuck,pcd and register size so need to make backplates to fit other lathe chucks etc.
    its made from ali i turned register to match one on lathe but double depth to allow new backplate to be square before marking mounting holes.
    holes are marked for drilling by 3 bolts with heads turned to points.

    second is a storage unit i made from some plastic trays i got from garage sale and reclaimed wood from childs bed.
    top drawer as some plastic bottle bases in to hold small parts other drawers hold offcuts of steel for use on lathe and seldom used tooling for lathe
