Thanks, Brad. You’re probably right about the threading. I knew it wasn’t 16, but I haven’t gone back out to the shop to confirm. I don’t necessarily need a faceplate or chuck, I was just thinking through what I might need someday. I’m not going to be a big bowl or vase guy, but I should probably turn at least one bowl just to say I did it!

If it is 3/4×10, that will make my decision making a bit easier since there aren’t lots of faceplates and chucks made with that threading!
