From http://www.teknatool.com/products/Chucks/SuperNova2/Downloads/SuperNova2%20Maunal%20full%20version.pdf
”The larger bowl blanks or softer woods will require a deeper recess up to the maximum of 6mm (1/4 inch). Page12
HOWEVER YOU MUST USE THE MAXIMUM RECESS DEPTH ON ALL RECESSES OVER
64mm (2.5 inches) diameter OR ANY WORK WITH A DIAMETER OVER 150mm (6 inches).
For smaller lids and thin platters (not exceeding 150mm diameter) only a shallow recess of
around 3mm (1/8 inch) is necessary. It will be a matter of gaining experience as to what
combinations and sizes will suit best.”

I go with the max (1/4”) on most everything except platters where depth matters (wood conservation).

Jeff, why don’t you make a trip out to the Southwest side off Valencia, and I’ll show you what I’ve been doing and how I do it…........ PM me with a phone number if you think it’s a good idea…...... Jerry (in Tucson)
