ELMER’S CORNER: Found in Vol. 21/ no. 125 of Woodsmith

Centering a Lathe Faceplate

Finding the center of a blank is easy – you just mark diagonal lines across the work piece. The spot where these lines cross is the center. But trying to center a faceplate on this spot can be a challenge. However, by finding a spade bit that is the same diameter as the opening on your faceplate will make this job easier.  Place the point of the bit on the center point of your blank. While holding the bit in place, slide the faceplate down over the end of the drill bit. Then screw the faceplate to the blank.
