They provide the power and strength necessary for large bowls and vases.
IMPORTANT NOTE: These jaws are NOW AVAILABLE FOR ALL OUR CHUCKS!
Due to their increased depth, there is more clearance when working on the back of the piece. This can be very desirable.
The top of the internal profile is dovetailed with no serrations. This part of the jaws is specifically designed for use in non-marking situations like when you want to leave the tenon on the bottom of a bowl as a feature.
Patented Profiled Design
The profiled jaws provide maximum gripping power with minimal damage to the piece. There ingenious design allows the maximum gripping power across the entire range of the jaws. This means you no longer have to worry about getting the spigot close to the design diameter as you do with traditional serrated jaws.
These jaws have roughly the same capacities as the profiled #3 Tower Jaws. The inside of the jaws have the traditional serrations milled into them, while the outside surface of the jaws is smooth. They are designed for light to heavy cutting applications on larger projects. These jaws may mark your work less when used at design diameter, however, as you move away from the design diameter, wood damage increases.
