I'm thinking of building a Longworth Chuck to reverse bowls to finish their bottoms. My lathe has a 12" swing. What is the largest bowl I can mount on a Longworth Chuck if I make it the maximum size for my lathe?
I realize there are likely a number of variables based on exactly how I build the Chuck. I have a bowl with a 9-1/4" outside diameter that I'd like to mount in it. Is that bowl too large? Anyone with experience using a Longworth Chuck, I'd very much appreciate your feedback.
