Skye, I think the chuck that Becca has is meant to screw onto the external threads. I also have the TurncrafterPlus and a bottle stopper mandrel. Both are 3/4-16 threads. This type of mandrel will not work in a Jacobs chuck because it is meant to use external threads.

I should have told you to check your lathe, before ordering the mandrel. I did the same thing and got one too small. I just sold a mt1 mandrel, for a lathe that I had ordered, but had to cancel. It's a hastle, but you're going to love turning them. I'm getting ready to try some spalted curly buckeye wood in a stopper. I just sold a set and didn't know the wood was curly, until I pulled out of its wrapper.

Let me know when you're ready for more blanks.

The 3/4 x 16TPI chuck will fit the turncrafter plus.
