    What filament did you use for this? It may be quite dangerous if the plastic is not strong enough to resist the centrifugal forces of spinning it too fast. Introducing a workpiece and cutting on it will only make the problem worse. Maybe Nylon would be OK but I'd be very wary of PLA, ABS or PETG.

    I likewise would not trust thischuck much. On the otherhand an excellent proof of concept. You could take this design to shapeways oroneof theother job shops doing 3D metal printing. Even here I would strongly suggest studying the engineering data to figure out safe operating conditions.

    This brings up the obvious question of cost effectiveness compared to buying new. Of course custom jaws are another possibility.

    I've been working on a way to make custom metal jaws for this chuck. A new video will be up soon about it
