Historical Ellipse Chuck

An Ellipse Chuck is similar to an eccentric chuck, but is used to make oval parts. The details are difficult to explain, and are better explained by John Edwards' document.

Wes Pilley made one and showed pictures along the way on his Instagram page. This is not a project that I would recommend for the weekend machinist.
