JAW CHUCK USAGE *PIC*

Bill Hale / The Wood Spinner
>I have been ask many times about jaw chuck mounting and how big can you turn using one.
I have included a pic showing a Piece of Pistachio mounted in a Vic. chuck. I start between centers and rough out the outide and turn a spigout on the bottom. In this case it is 5 " Dia. I then turn the piece around and chuck to the bottom. As this piece weighed in at about 60 lbs after outside roughing I use the tail stock live center to assist holding. I do not remove it until the piece is fully roughed out.
Finished size 17 1/2 " x 9 1/2
