High Jaws for your Wood turning Chuck

Making the woodturning jaws (2)

then the jaws were mounted to the chuck image
They were trued up and
marked for adding the raised parts.
A piece of scrap hardwood, in this case elm, was marked for the jaw pieces
which were then roughed on the band saw and the bottoms smoothed for gluing.
The jaw parts were glued and screwed to the jaw bases and let dry. Yellow wood glue should be more than sufficient.
Once the glue was well dried, I remounted them on the chuck and trued them up inside and out.
To ensure they were returned to the same place on the chuck I marked them (L)ong and (S)hort to match the stop channels on my One Way chuck.
