This is about all i use for turning knobs for my handplanes…

I just turn a cylinder first with a few lathe tools, using the lathe’s tool rest.

Along with the rare chisel handles. My “Face Plate” that I have used? Came from the plumbing section at BORG. Called a floor flange. I got the size the will screw onto the lathe. Ranit at the slowest speed i had, and used a file to true it up. Flange has four holes to screw items in place.
