Centering Donut Chuck for Reverse Turning  plansFree Centering Donut Chuck for Reverse Turning plans - Donut chucks and cole jaws have both been around for a long time. I decided to combine them to make a new version of a donut chuck that centers the turning. A donut chuck is used to hold the turning reversed so the bottom can be turned. One problem with a donut chuck is that it doesn't center the piece very well. Cole jaws are used to grip and center a turning, but they only work well if the turning's chucking diameter is much wider than the turning height, like a salad bowl or a platter. For example, cole jaws could only be used with vases if the lathe tailstock was used to secure them.
