I'm wanting to make something, and want to search on newbie mistakes
to avoid, but i don't recall what the thing is called.

It is a common chuck/jig for holding a bowl for finishing the bottom.

Roughly, it is two circles of plywood, the first on a faceplate or
such, and the second a donut that holds the bowl while exposing the
bottom for clean-up.

Brother, can you spare a name?


To borrow a phrasing from another group, I can be more vague if it
helps.

I believe what you are looking for is called a Straka Chuck.

Thanks you both.  That and donut chuck turn up a lot.

For some reason, I thought it was named for a person whose name I
would recognize.  But the discussion I recall reading was when I
first got the lathe, and I was mis-absorbing all sorts of information.

You, and another poster, are confusing it with a Longworth chuck.  That  
one is a bit different, but serves the same purpose.  See:

That very well may be.  I probably first encountered both in the
same week or two.


Thanks again to all.
