Have you seen the faceplate for the Big Bird lathe?

Couldn’t find it this afternoon when I wanted to take some measurements of its dimensions.

The two smaller faceplates are stored under the smaller lathes, but Big Bird’s is apparently out there somewhere in the wilderness.

A quick update, in case it helps someone else:

@David helped me find the faceplate that can be used on Big Bird. As of last weekend, it’s in the white box in the cabinet which sits on the right side of the turning area, under the Turncrafter lathe:

The box contains the faceplate and a hex key for the set screws:

Oh, and don’t be like me – I forgot to bring screws with me :upside_down_face:

We also have an adapter that converts the 1 1/4" x 8 thread to a 1" x 8 thread so you can use the faceplates from the smaller lathes. Work is in progress to improve the hardware storage in the lathe area.
