CNC machined Longworth chuck for wood lathes. This device developed years ago by Mr. Leslie Longworth of Australia in the late 1980s. I've taken modern tech and used it to create a precise tool for removing and refinishing the bottom of bowls on the wood lathe. The Longworth chuck setup is a great alternative to a costly vacuum chuck system.
I use 1/2" Purebond plywood for the two plates and the same rubber stoppers found on the more expensive units. I include a hub/faceplate threaded for your machine. The faceplate is made from wood that's been stabilized with Cactus Juice epoxy resin in a vacuum chamber.
I also offer just the CNC cut plates if you'd like to use your own stoppers and faceplate.
Available in 10 inch to 20 inch sizes. Please see other listings!
