I flip bowls from figured, irregular materials, and generally I break a chunk out of the rim. If the piece is unbroken I’ve a way to connect it again on with out eradicating the bowl from the lathe. I alter the software relaxation so it acts as a clamping caul. I exploit cyanoacrylate glue for a fast, sturdy restore. If the bowl is mounted bottom-out, as proven, I place the software relaxation towards the underside of the bowl, and clamp between the restore and the remaining. If the bowl is mounted rim-out, I attempt to insert the software relaxation between the headstock and clean, or I exploit the headstock itself because the clamping level.
