    Would work OK if you have extra set of soft jaws. I Wouldn't necessarily bore my normal jaws.

    In OP's case I would have most probably just use the serrations in the jaws or swap to OD jaws if they have suitable gripping location. But I like the "mass production" approach for the boring job nonetheless.
    Jobs like these would be yet another reason to complete my adjustable spindle bore stop..
