Dovetail Jaw Question

George Van
>I am going to order smooth dovetail jaws for my Stronghold chuck. What size do you use the most? If my thinking is correct I was entertaining the idea of the spigot jaws as they expand 1 1/8 2 5/8. If I figure a backing that would leave me a foot of 3 5/8. Which would cover bowls up to 11 diameter. If I bought the #2 jaws I would have 2 3 5/8. With 2 minimum the 3 foot would limit me for the smaller bowls. Am I thinking straight?

Thanks, George
