you can grind a 3 jaw chuck quite easily.. at a particular diameter...
clamp a thin washer at the back of the jaws..and turn and grind all jaws the same with a tool post grinder...
and they will be quite accutrate...but only for that diameter

I am also considering  the Draganfly exchange shoe program for my ariel type hubs and then thought I might be able to get them re lined locally.

Does any one know what the thickness of the liner material should be on a fresh set of shoes and what's the best material to source *????*

Richard O that is some amazing work you've got going on down there  *ex*
