A number of years ago I bought a Ron Brown Longworth Chuck at the Denver Woodworking Show. It is phenolic with button screws, wing nuts and silicon bumpers. Because of the phenolic material it will NOT stay in the position as required to hold a turning, as it slides apart – expands – no matter how tight the wing nuts are. I used three bolts with locking nuts, in addition to the wing nuts, so as to hold it in position. The next time I saw Ron Brown was at the Phoenix AAW Symposium, and I explained the problem. His response was, “So, what you want me to do about it”? He then turned around and walked off. All I was doing was explaining about my problem with his product. So, with his attitude, there will be no more Ron Brown purchases from me ! As a repeat of Dan V. in Indy – “The stuff he sells needs to work for the intended purpose”. And from me – without modifications.
