Just got a Nova chuck and this is my first attempt at turning a foot and expanding the chuck on the inside.
The “foot” is 3/8 deep and about 2 inch wide. My first reaction was that the recess was to big. The bowl is
5 1/2 wide and 3 tall but it sits well and curves under fairly well. Somewhat thick at the bottom as some spots are closer to being compost than wood. A fair bit of wood hardener invested. All comments welcomed as I am having a tough time trying to decide if I like the thing or not. I wish I had sanded the foot better before I took it off the face plate as I can’t get into it now
