 P/S It is okay from Dennis's complaint on. as there are no adverts, it is the only page affected by the problem.

I second Daves suggestion regarding a chuck with an insert. If push comes to shove, then ypou can get an insert made relativly easily.
 
I think the plethora of sizes comes from the popularity of woodturning, and a wide range of manufacturers making lathes for us, hence the different sizes, seems to be sittling down now to some standard threads, no help if you have inherited an old lathe though!
 
Welcome to the forum Liz, you will always get help here.

hi All
   just a little bit of info for every one about threads and sizes.if you are unshure about the threads you have all you need to do is firstly measur the size of the shaft across the threadded area. then count the amount of threads per inch and then you can findout what thread size you have from thread pitch chart like this >one< .

 That is correct for imperial sizes, but metric threads are measured different i/e measure the dia, say it is 30mm you then measure the pitch of the thread, that is across the thread 3.5mm seems to be a standard metric thead pitch. iif that is any help

Thank you all for your very warm welcome. I'm pretty much decided on the supernova, now all i need are some tips on how to extract a credit card out of my husbands wallet!
Any ideas?
Liz
