I recently got a 4 jaw chuck for my Carba-Tec.
I’m trying to turn some toothpick holders.
Instructions say to turn a 1/4” tenon on the rounded spindle and put that tenon in the chuck.
Did that. Won’t stay. Made it 1/2” tenon, still won’t stay.
Should I have a taper on the tenon? Wider at the base narrower near the spindle? Other way around? Deeper tenon?
I’ve watched the videos at Wood magazine and he doesn’t seem top have this problem.
