Title: Self-aligning lathe chuck jaws

Abstract

A lathe chuck jaw for a lathe chuck having a radially moving actuator which radially moves the jaw in to and out from the workpiece. A jaw base part is rigidly connected to the actuator. A jaw shoe part is rotatably attached to the base part. The shoe part has a workpiece-comforming surface which can hold the workpiece. The rotatable attachment of the shoe part allows it to match the general orientation of the workpiece, including a nonlongitudinal orientation due to a workpiece's imperfect shape.
