|Tip: Large Chuck Jaws for Reverse Turning|
Large Chuck Jaws for Reverse Turning
I made large wooden jaws for my chuck to reverse turn bowls.
There should be a gap between all the jaws. This will give plenty of adjustment to the jaws when finished.
Remove the dowel and you are ready to turn. The dovetails can be resized as needed. When the jaws become too small, simply build some more.
A cautionary note: MDF is somewhat fragile so make your dovetails at least ½" (13mm) thick. Also, breathing MDF dust is hazardous so wear a dust mask and use a good dust collection system.
