    Comments about Sorby 3/16" Diamond Parting Tool :

    I use this chuck for turning bowls tiny and huge, up to 12 inches diameter. Its holding power is intense, even for end grain turning, provided that you have cut a large and strong enough tenon for your work. It also works excellently in the expansion as well as the contraction mode.
