AAAARRRRRGGGGGG mixed up the lathe jaws


Recommended Posts

The inside jaws have been installed on my lath for years and I've marked them to match the chuck.  But today, I needed the outside jaws to hold a large piece.  That's when I realized that those jaws were not match to the chuck.  Spent a bit of time using the "hit and miss" method.....then shut off the lights and went inside.  Even a fool knows his limits.  So what is the secret, math formula for timing these jaws to meet in the middle..........THX, Keith
