Longworth for Segmented Turners
Why 6 buttons instead of 8? What makes this special for Segmented Turning Projects?
A customer asked for a Longworth Chuck that would hold a 12-sided segment for gluing. He wanted the buttons to contact equidistant segments, and he was having difficulty using the standard 8-button Longworth chuck. I designed this for him and other segmented turners whose projects needed to be divisible by 6.
Projects with 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, etc. segments are the target. We can offer the 6-button Longworth Chucks Type 2 for Segmented turners in all sizes in both the basic and combinations.
If you already have the 8-button Longworth chuck, the Doughnut Ring is NOT COMPATIBLE with the 6-button because the bolt patterns are different. For regular bowl bottom finishing, the 6-button Longworth Chuck is used just like the 8-button Longworth Chuck.
