Product Information:

Collet chucks are preferred by woodturners for holding small pieces for turning because the collets grip tight enough to easily hold your work but with little or no marring. Our chuck is built to machinist tolerances and uses interchangeable collets to grip round tenons. The collets, which work just like the chuck in your router, grip with even pressure completely around the tenon on your workpiece. Includes eight collets which range from 1/8" to 3/8" and 1/2" to 5/8" by 16ths, collet chuck with #2 Morse taper and chuck wrench in a fitted case.


  • Includes eight collets which range from 1/8" to 3/8" and 1/2" to 5/8" by 1/16"
  • #2 Morse taper
  • Perfect for holding small pieces
  • Tight grip with little or no marring

    Very useful for working with small diameter stock, easy setup and collet changes. I use it frequently with my Rikon. I would recomment getting a draw bar to use with it as it can vibrate loose.

    Comments about WoodRiver Turners Collet Chuck Set #2 MT :

    This chuck works great with pin chuck manderals and shop made jam chucks. It was a little confusing using at first due to the way the collet seats in the chuck. It looks like the head that threads on over the chuck was made wrong and and the chuck collet does not fit correctly but is in fact designed so the collet slips into the screw on collar and sort of locks in to the collet and then you put it into the chuck body. Then once threaded on loose slip your pin chuck or work piece in and continue to tighten. I went to Woodcraft in Spokane after buying this chuck there thinking something was wrong the way the screw on collar was machined so we looked at another one and it was the same. Denny and Marc who work there assisted me and between us found on woodcrafts owners forum that this has been a misunderstood design and the threaded collar was machined to lock the collet loosely in first then insert into the chuck body. Well once I got the answer from Marc and Denny needless to say the chuck works great and I am very happy with it. Thanks Marc and Denny for the great customer service.

    Comments about WoodRiver Turners Collet Chuck Set #2 MT :

    I use this to hold mandrels for making musical instruments, The ability to hold round bars up to 5/8" with out having to buy a 5C collet chuck and machine a back plate for the wood lathe is a real plus. The tapered end is threaded to allow the use of a draw bar to keep the chuck tight in you headstock in case you are not using this tool in conjunction with your tailstock.

    Comments about WoodRiver Turners Collet Chuck Set #2 MT :

    As demonstrated by Charles Niel. Great addition to a Lathe. But there does not seem to be a drawbar capability. It is essential that the chuck be fastened through the headstock for secure seating in the Lathe.... A chuck spinning out of the headstock can be very dangerous.
