Mike Peace does an excellent job demonstrating and explaining the different ways of attaching wood to your lathe. He covers turning between centers using several different types of drive centers and why he likes some over others. He covers the use of faceplates, jam chucks, Colet chucks, screw chucks, movable jaw or scrolling chucks, mandrels, and vacuum chucks. This video is well worth your time to watch, especially if you are new to turning.
