    How do you store your router plane?

    Thread Starter: Andrew Pitonyak

    Saw advice

    Thread Starter: Blake M Williams

    Super Nova II chuck

    Thread Starter: Shawn Siegrist

    I have a 1 1/4” direct thread Super Nova II chuck. I’ve had the chuck for about a week, very happy with it. Maybe I’m missing something obvious but what is the best way to remove the chuck from the lathe? There doesn’t appear to be flat spots for a wrench, any suggestions??? Thanks, Shawn
