Hi, i just bought my first wood lathe and i want to get a faceplate and a chuck to it, but there is this piece that i dont know how to take off it, so i was wondering if anyone knew if there is a special tool or something to take it off, i have tried with two wrenches and used a lot of power but it dosn't come off.

Welcome to the forum. Looks like it is well rusted on?

If it doesn't have a spindle stop or any way to stop the shaft from turning your pretty much left with it the way it is. It's still useful for some turning. No turning between centers or faceplate bowl work.
The piece you want to remove is actually a means of turning the stock. So even if you get it removed save it for future use.

Thanks for the tip.

Go to the OWWM (Olf Wood Working Machines) site. You can find it on YouTube. I'm sure someone on this site has solved this same problem. Just out of curiosity is the shaft hollow and accessible from the other end of the power head? If so it maybe a tapered fit. If open stick a steel rod in and give it a good smack..
