Topic tags/keywords: chuck homemade chuck woodworking chuck jig tip oak lathe turning traditional

This is a sketchup That I am currently working on, It’s for my homemade lathe I built a few years back.
I am still using the lathe most days and it’s still going strong.. I have designed the chuck this way because currently I only have a normal drill press chuck on it that I welded to the shaft. I have almost done the design and I will be making it soon after my two current projects are done..

So each jaw adjusts independently? I wouldn’t want to work that way but I admire that you make your own tools.
