I just got done making a Longworth Chuck.
I used the information I got from Wood Turning Online
I used 3/4” MDF and 1/2” plywood. The stops are made out of some rubber stoppers for chair legs that I inserted 5/8” dowel and then drilled a 1/4” hole for the hardware.
This was fun to do the big trick is making sure you take your time in the layout of for the arcs because if you don’t get these right it wont work.
This one will only take up to a 6” bowl but I am limited on size due to I have a Jet 1024 lathe. The disks are 9” in diameter.
