OneWay Jumbo Jaw Buttons - Bill Holt - 07-06-2022

The rubber on the "buttons" is severely cracker although still intact.  A set of new buttons is $31+.  Are the new buttons any better?  Mine are 10 or 12 years old and have been cracked for most of the time.
I noticed taller options on Ebay.  What say ye ole brain trust?

I wouldn't trust severely cracked buttons to not let go in-use. I am not sure why, but I think that I would trust them more in expansion than in compression, but I would be using the tailstock at all times.

I think that Woodcraft (among others) also carry the taller buttons. I was tempted to get a set for my Nova chucks, but have not gotten a round tuit.

Does anyone happen to know if the buttons/bumpers for the Oneway and the Nova/Record are interchangeable?

Get some stiff white floor mats and make them yourself

I like the Record Power bumpers, the ones with profiles.
