It’s time to trim the one gallon ollas for my latest order. Once again, I’ll use this old crock as my trimming ‘chuck’. A chuck is like the device on your drill or lathe that holds a bit or object to be trimmed in a position aligned with the axis of the axle that spins the potter’s wheel. The chuck is held in postion with two coils of clay pressed against the wheel head and the base of the crock.
