Those tapered buttons look great. Never knew about them.

you are not alone

IMO, Teknatool/NOVA isn't the best at marketing, PERIOD.
Poorly maintained website/s, product announcements without product and so on.
The only way I found out about them is to "search them out"
They have been around for about 5 years or so. IMO this is what should come as standard. I think it would help if not eliminate the negative status cole jaws have among turners. Not to mention they are far safer (in most situations) than the standard straight sided buffers.

Here is what I made / use:

The buttons are turned wood core with a soft clear hose over the outside,  All held in place with carriage bolts.  This is ~22" in diameter.  Holes drilled in the plywood face allow for off-center turning too!
