NEW addition to Sherline's chuck selections
Sherline 1043 - 3-Jaw Self-centering Wood Lathe Chuck 3.1" Diameter This chuck is identical to our P/N 1040 self-centering chuck except that it has a 1"-8 TPI thread that accommodates most wood-working lathes. Because this chuck was initially designed for machine-lathe work, its accuracy far exceeds what is necessary for general wood turning. It has a clamping range of 3/32" (2 mm) up to 1-3/16" (30 mm) diameter with the jaws in the normal position. With the jaws in the reversed position, work up to 2-1/4" (56 mm) can be gripped. The hole through the chuck is .687" (17 mm). Rotating the knurled ring closes all three jaws simultaneously to quickly grip round or hexagonal stock. Tommy bars (provided) are used in the holes in the side to tighten and loosen the chuck for more leverage. Jaw Tightness on Scrolling Chucks... Sherline technicians custom grind each jaw to fit its own slot with as little play as possible. Grinding is done to within .0001". This assure maximum accuracy. If you have sent in an old chuck for jaw replacement or are replacing an old, worn chuck, you will notice that the new one is initially harder to turn than your worn one. As chucks wear, they become looser and easier to turn.
