    Thermal expansion at that diameter will be significant unless it is climate controlled year round. If the fixture and part are the same material then it wont be a problem.

    Ive never used a 2-jaw but i think think this is the type of lathe work they are good for. If this is for a larger quantity it might be worth looking into.

    Can you make a plug (or series of plugs)?

    To combat the oval, you could make it similar to a dimond pin used for locating.

    Line 2: profile cycle
    Line 3: ISO input 'G55'
    Line 4: profile cycle
    Etc...

    Use your own measured dimenions. This will get you in the ballpark. The holes in the plate are not going...
