      Cast iron doesn't contract and expand as much as ordinary steel, same reason surface plates/master plates are cast iron

          The best way to find center of a circular bore with a shaper is to increase your tolerance until you're in spec.

              Very nice. Trying to buy a made one you need to look in the UK for an old chuck with a backplate there are loads about now we are full of bust factories. . Then simply cut the diameter to the one you need for the new chuck.

                    Hi Tony, Can you make a back plate L00 8" and ship it to the Netherlands? Pricing? Thanks Peter

                      That chuck currently sells for under 100 USD in Canada - 111 CAD to be precise and is the standard chuck for "Chinese". I have to make the 3rd back plate in my life - a D1-3 for a small lathe I just purchased. Maybe I do better then D1-6 back plates I made. One of these back plates is for 8" chuck that has the SAME threads as your lathe - I just have to recycle that back plate and put in a new one I make.

                        2:20 It's for vibration and cast iron will remain more precise over time. The latter maybe needs some explanation. When steel get's an dent or you'll fit in the lathe with an burr between the lathe and backplate, the damage has less consequences with cast iron than steel. With cast iron it's easier to file away.

                              the thing that gets about this is vernacular, like someone says 'i'll give clearance of one hundred thousandths' and at first i'm thinking 'oh so one hundredth thousandth or .00001' and they're like 'no, one HUNDRED thousandths, no th on the one hundred' and i'm like so 'you mean 1 tenth' and then get people that jump into fractions like 11/64ths or 3/16 or something equally annoying. Like holy shit I don't have all the goddamn fractions memorized and my digital measurement tools don't use fractions, just stick to decimals god dammit or fuck it let's just switch to metric already.

                                put a 90 degree x on the sphere then brake that down to 45 degree then between 90 and 45 degree marks measure between for alignment make mark at that point and center on cutting tool.

                                  I've never machined anything on a standard lathe, though I have machined many, many brake rotors and drums on a brake lathe. 😄 More than once I've found myself cutting parts manually instead of letting the machine feed the tool across the face of the rotor. 😁 Yea, I was having fun lol

                                    They are made of cast iron becausex cast iron absorbd vibrations better than steel and it helps with harmonics when cutting.

                                      From my understanding, I was always told that cast iron was used because it helps deaden harmonics.

                                              I feel like I started this hobby way too late in life.. So much can do on these machines and time it takes experimenting and trying different things plus research and watching vids, I feel pressed for time.. Also, this is not the only hobby...

                                                I have studied this video for over 3 years now and have reached the inescapable conclusion: If you had punched the stock with your first two knuckles instead of ring/pinkey knuckles it would have come out straight... HOWEVER, after watching your other videos I can safely say that imparting that much raw power would have also formed a black hole that would have ended all life as we know it. But I mean that's a totally acceptable price for a perfectly straight cut.

                                                    Question on MATERIAL used? I needed a back plate for my SB 10K lathe (bench lathe belt driven). I got a manufacture's back plate (old one used) and intended to cut it down to the size I needed. However, I found it was very difficult to turn down. Using a carbide insert tool when a cut was started the chip came off glowing red hot. Thus, I stopped at once. Perhaps a deeper cut should be made, but my lathe can not handle that, and I didn't want to harden the thing.
                                                    Do you have any thoughts as to what material it is made of. It is some kind of steel, but?

                                                    The end result is I started another back plate from scratch and will set this one aside rather than ruin it.

                                                      @Tommy Chandler I would rather have used cast, but the back plate I used was an original old one. Dumbbell idea is interesting, I may have to start looking around at some 2nd hand shops for one. Thanks.

                                                      I saw a video that the person used old cast iron weights (dumbbell type). That worked good, and old Tony said cast iron is really what they are made from..

                                                      Any ideas how I can do it myself?

                                                                So I bought a lathe last week and it arrived here on the weekend (meaning I drug it here myself. Through a door and down some steps to get it out) and just realized it's the same kind of lathe ( Colchester right?) you have, Looks like the same model and everything. I had no idea they were so common as the guy I got mine from shipped it from England 30 years ago. it was advertised as an English lathe. What's it like? my lathe at the place I worked at was a giant lodge and Shipley but I only need small parts now and this one's in nice shape but with too small a motor

Since the electrics have been reduced to a simple on/off function with no reverse and too small a motor I have some work to do. Maybe a frequency drive. In reeed to make springs, super slow would be nice... ahhb spoke too soon. Colchester wrote back and sent a new manual, mines actually a Master 6.5 x 36
