These special 25mm extended jaws are designed to act like a pin chuck, expanding into a pre-bored hole. This is an especially useful holding method for bowls with a free form edge. A big advantage over pin chucks is that you don't have to bore to an exact size - any size between the minimum and just under the maximum expansion will do. The longer jaw length allows for a very powerful spigot grip for smaller work like lace bobbins (up to 6" in length) and delicate pots. The jaws also have a dovetail for mounting small bowls (up to 6" in diameter).
