SteveMI made me a guinea pig for a project he made of a Longworth Chuck. Gladly I accepted. It was a beautiful model and worked great, one thing I improved on for my own turning was to make the bumpers longer because I usually turn bigger bowls. He had used rubber cane bumbers with an inner core of oak which worked very good, but my design served my needs better. In our communication he told me he is selling these and making a 16 inch larger model, mine is an 11 and 1/4 inch model. It really works great. You can screw your plate on the bottom of your wood and hollow out your bowl, flip it over and screw you SteveWorth Chuck on and man it is slick, you can turn your bottom knowing your piece is secure and within minutes you’re ready to sand and finish. I highly recommend these chucks. I’ve owned the Cole Jaw Chuck and they are a pain in the butt to use, and not only that I never thought they were that safe. These are. Ahh, Now for Pictures….
