Re: 3-jaw chuck jaw types or names

Some reversible chucks have an inside and out side set of jaws. Others use the same bottom part of the jaws but have a key way type slot in them that allows the top part of the jaw to be reversed to change from an inside to outside jaws.
If course, I am only a tinker with the lathes. Having spent a career in the dismal science.

Well, that would make some sort of sense, as the long part of the jaw would be toward the Inside or the Outside of the chuck (i.e., referring to the chuck and not to the workpiece).
