    I'd like to make my own chuck......I've got a cnc machine that would cut the arcs with no problem. I've also got a lot of 1/2" corian that would work well with the chuck.

    What escapes me is how the bolts ride in the lower piece of the chuck. Are the arcs cut into the lower piece wider than the top so as to accomodate the bolt head?

    Are the two pieces attached to one another somehow?

    Couple pics would sure be nice.

    The bottom plate has the same grove on the top of the plate with a shallow dado on the bottom for the bolt head to slide along. Sorry, I don't have any pictures but if you look at the SegEasy construction video it shows an example. Title: Segmentology

    I made on on my cnc and used carriage head bolts and they slide very nice, Corian really works well.
