Just got my first mini metal lathe. Mostly woodworking up to this point. This is a 9x20 lathe and, so far, looks great, with not too much cleaning required. However, I do have a few questions. During the cleaning process, I removed the installed 4" 3-jaw chuck but am not sure how to remove the adapter plate. I also got a 5" 4-jaw chuck with adapter plate, so at some point I'm sure I'll have to remove it. It's not held on by any visible bolts, so it probably screws in. The other question is, on the back of the control box, there a recessed female AC plug. Anyone know what it's for? A light maybe?

I check around and read the manual, but couldn't find anything. I'm hoping that one of the guru's here might be able to help out a newbie.
