downloaded some of the videos. You cut those without using a way to put any tension on the jaws?

The video files only played sound.

I tried to download two of them. Neither would play.

Can you post them in a way or place where they work properly?

No - I had equally sized blocks between the jaws and tightened them up to tension them in the inward direction.

hmmm - that’s odd. They’re just .mov files. I’ll try again later once I’ve gotten logged into work and cleared the decks.

I have been using an entire hub assembly as an adapter to balance 8 lug wheels on my old Snap On tire balancer. The tire, rim, hub assy, and the balancers shaft and cones are really heavy, so I thought that I would lighten it up. It was too big for my bandsaw, so I had to think of another way.
The chuck on my rotary table was just big enough to hold the rotor.

That is an ordinary carbide circular saw blade. I cut .025" per revolution.

I finished my 2-1/2" steady rest for my mini-lathe. I used precision stainless steel shielded ball bearings (R188-2Z) from McMaster-Carr. I used OSH Cut to plasma cut the main ring to save me a lot of time machining that part.

I'm very pleased with the results.
