How about using a blank back plate for a lathe chuck? https://www.amazon.com/South-Bend-L...8-1-spell&keywords=southbend+blank+back+plateI am thrashing on what to do with the head rotation. I'd like to use a worm gear to make moving the head exact, but the design is a mess for a hobby project. I may just dump the gear part. The cost of 6" diameter stock is also daunting. I'm not sure how my little HF bandsaw will do cutting 6" rounds either. I wonder if I can get away with using aluminum instead of cast iron.
