chuck jaw question

GaryG in MD
For 4-jaw scroll chucks in compression mode:
I have collet chucks at 3/4" and below.
I have #2 jaws that go down to roughly about 1-5/8" minimum.
Sometimes I would like to hold a tenon in the 1" - 1.5" range.
I don't want to buy a huge collet chuck.
I have pin jaws that work, but they're very tall, and I'm not a fan.
I also have step jaws for small things in expansion mode, but they're tall too.
Is there such a thing as a "normal" #1 set of jaws that covers my desired range?
If so, who makes them and where can I find them?

What do you use?
