Another thing I'm curious about. I haven't used a D1-4 Camlock before 
and I can't seem to find information on how to use it. I did find the 

but mine is a little different than the one shown in the link above. The 
linked spindle shows the cam is just clockwise of the chuck pin puller 
hole. Mine is counter clockwise which suggests that the locking motion 
is different.

Looking closer, the example chuck plate is like mine. The spindle 
picture suggests righty-tighty (clock-wise-tighty), the chuck example 
and my lathe suggest counter-clock-wise-tighty. Do D1-4 mounts go both 
ways? Also, I found information that the pull pins need to be adjusted 
so that the cams will detent when tight. Any help clearing this up would 
be appreciated.
