These silicone buttons are replacements for the stock buttons that come on the Longworth Style Chucks (#49046 and #48730, sold separately). The buttons are designed to expand under pressure to hold your bowl turnings so you can make the finishing cuts to the bottom side. Soft silicone material grips tightly, but won't mar your workpiece. The kit includes eight silicone buttons plus the installation hardware.

Features:

  • For use with the Longworth Style Chucks (#49046 and #48730, sold separately)
  • Silicone material is very pliable, giving the buttons excellent grip and durability
  • Includes eight buttons, plus fastening hardware

Make a Longworth wheel using these
Make your own Longworth Style Chuck for a fraction of the cost of purchasing a factory made one. These work great holding your piece firmly.

Worked for my 10 inch plates
Nice set worked perfectly - long shanks would be nicer - looking for longer buttons

replacement buttons
THEY WORK BETTER THAN I EXPECTED. I HAD TURNED A BOWL LID AND FORGOT TO TURN THE INSIDE. THESE WERE TALL ENOUGH TO HOLD THE ROUNDED LID SO I COULD TURN THE INSIDE OF THE LID

Great product!
A little stiffer and tougher then original Longworth buttons, fit perfect. Should last longer.

I'm making a Longworth chuck out of plywood? Are the bolts long enough to handel 2 pcs of 3/4" plywood?
Barry W on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Barry, it would be a tight fit. With the washers in place, there is 1 7/16" of thread left, not quite enough. Maybe you could use one 3/4" p/w and one 1/2" p/w? I also used these to make a Longworth chuck; I used only one piece of 3/4" p/w, which has been OK for my purposes, but I have a small lathe. I think this product is a good product for making a Longworth chuck, the rubber part smushes down nicely to grab the edge of your bowl. Be sure to use all eight of them.
Is this 1/4" 20 hardware?
Mike M on Jun 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The outside of the threads measures 1/4" and the inside of the threads measures approx. 3/16". And yes, they are 20 tpi.
Are the washer suppose to get drawn up in the buttons ?
Cheryl S on Sep 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, if you draw them to tight you might split the button, but they must be tight enough to hold the material and keep the chuck from slipping.
What are the size of the silicone plugs? Are there different sizes for different bowls?
Michael M on Nov 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: the button is 1 inch long , 5/8 inch wide on the small tapered side and 13/16 wide on the fat side. one size fits all. the black buttons are a lot denser than the original red buttons that were very jelly like.
