>I designed. and my machinist friend helped me build this set of aluminum jaws for my Supernova2. It is intended to allow access to the inside of a tube-like form (open at both ends) so the inside can be sanded and finished. It cannot be held with the regular jaws because of the shape, and it would be too close to the chuck to work in the inside.
The wood part can be made to any shape needed.
When I first saw this spinning around, I decided not to hold the sandpaper with my fingers, but put foam backed sandpaper on a paddle. Well, my lathe can be run at very low speeds anyway.
