When turning the thin wall components, try making a set of jaws, bored with them set closed. i tend to bore them .002 to .003 thou smaller than the componant. 5mm is plenty depending on the operations involved, if heavy sideways cutting (large grooving etc) then be cautious!but for simple facing and boring/turning it should be fine. I myself turn 200mm rings 1mm wall thickness using this method and avoid distortion. Try getting the jaws to almost completely surround the componant as this avoids the three 'flats'. Hope I've helped..
