Hey Dust, if you’re gonna be doing a lot of turnings, make yourself a go, no go tool. One size is the minimum that your chuck is ideal for a recess, and the other end of the tool would be the maximum. Anything in between would be perfect. It’ll save you time in the long run.

I use one for tenons. . It’s nothing more than a 6” long piece of 1/4” plastic with a cut out at each end to these sizes, 1 3/4” and 2 5/16”. When cutting tenons, slip it over the tenon. If it doesn’t fit on the larger size, keep cutting. If it slips over the smaller size, you done screwed up. It’s not supposed to slip over the smaller end.
Recesses would be about the same, but you would make a different type of jig…........... Jerry (in Tucson)
