Easy Wood anodized aluminum faceplates are precision machined to meet the needs of the most demanding wood turner. Faceplates are drilled with eight screw holes for secure mounting, along with a 5/16” diameter hole for breaking the faceplate free. Aluminum faceplates are an excellent choice for green wood turning since they will not transfer stains or rust and because they are softer than steel they reduce the amount of tool damage from accidental contact.

Quickbowl

You might say, what’s the big deal about turning a bowl in about 3 hours time, anyone can do that! Well in this project we will instruct you on how to turn a bowl while it’s green, dry it, finish it, all in just a few hours. John Wolf (from the Turning Tuesday’s woodworkers) shows us how it’s done starting out with a piece of “green” curly maple saved from the scrap pile.

    Strong and True!

    Although I am comparing this to a homemade faceplate, this thing is GREAT! I was a little leary at first about this faceplate being aluminum, I have had bad luck with aluminum parts being out-of-square or not being true, but that's not the case here. The machine I am using (Harbor Freight) has odd ball threads so I had to get an adaptor, but this faceplate is very true and STRONG! I turn turkey slate calls and strikers, the slate calls have holes in the back for sound amplification, so I added a 3"X1 1/2" round turned sacrificial wooden block with a 3/8" hole drilled dead center, placed a washer and 3/8"X3" bolt through the inside of the faceplate, placed on the lathe, center drill and bolt my blank to the faceplate and start turning. I have been very pleased with the faceplate. I would definitely buy another one, if this one ever broke, but I don't think it will.
