I own several of these (I keep buying them when they are 40 or 50% off). I recently started using them without the screw-on jaw attachements. In other words, just the adjustable, sliding, permanently attached jaws. Is that ok?
I had Nova on phone yesterday, but had a different question. I am using it this was to hold small and medium sized round parts. Thank you for reading.

It should be if it holds the part tight enough to work on it. I have put blocks on two of the jaws to make a square lookine piece to the chuck and it always held fine. Cheers, Jim Jakosh

Yes you can use it that way but realize you are not getting a very strong grip on your piece. If you are going to turn small round stock on a regular basis you should consider getting a collet chuck.
