I'm interested in these jaws:
But I have a couple of questions. I have a Jet JML-1014 lathe with a 10" s wing. I'm wondering if these will fit. The largest bowl I can turn is ~ 1 0" and I hate to give up too much of that if I can avoid it. But I also li ke to turn very thin bowls if possible. So, if I recess the bottom to fit on my Nova jaws then I end up having to have the bottom thicker then I want . I would like to turn down that recess flush and thought this would be a solution. I'm also looking at those "donut" jigs, but from what I read I c ould lose up to 2" off the overall diameter if I do that. Would this also be the problem with the cole jaws? Would I have to give up a lot to achie ve this.
Essentially, I guess what I want is the largest bowl I can get, turned thin
, with a smooth bottom.
Hmmm, sounds like the perfect woman...
Anyway, any suggestions, as always, appreciated.
