Longworth chuck

Eric in Los Gatos
>Has anyone built the Longworth chuck described in the April 07 issue of Popular Woodworking? Any thoughts, impressions or experiences would be welcome input as I'm thinking about making one. My only concern at this point is that the article calls for MDF as the material for one of the plates and I wonder how it would wear compared so something like plywood. I did a 4 year search but didn't see anything useful.

TIA for any advice.
