Jaw protectors for the lathe chuck

So far it has not mattered if the things I make on the lathe have some minor surface defects, however, it would be nice to avoid that.

To that end, I have spent a little time making up some jaw protectors out of some leftover copper sheet.

I've made them for the 3 and 4 jaw chucks. By coincidence, the pattern for the two different chuck jaws happens to be the same, they are just bent slightly differently.

A fiddly job but not difficult. They will be very handy.
