Chuck protection

When I want a bright finished piece I rotate my lathe @ 60rpm and spray thick coats of lacquer. This technique allows fast layer build up without drips.

I protect my chuck while spraying by wrapping it with packing plastic.

You can get it @ Walmart in spools. Its easy to put on, connect it to the chuck and turn the lathe on at low speed to wrap it.

I generally leave my chucks wrapped in it, it has reduced my chuck cleaning to Zero.

I also use it to wrap wet pieces between turning sessions and also on pieces that I store for later turning.
