Product Information:

Expand the versatility of your lathe and mount your workpieces quicker and easier with the self-centering 4-jaw chuck. You'll appreciate the following features: wide range of jaw movement, quick action and a powerful grip in either expansion or contraction modes. Jaws will expand and grip in a 2-3" dovetailed recess in the base of your turning. Simply rotate the chuck's outer ring in the opposite direction to firmly hold round stock between 1-5/8" and 2-3/4" or square billets 1-1/8" to 2-1/8" in size. No disassembly or accessories are required to use the accompanying screw chuck, which has a 1-1/8" long right hand thread. Chuck body is chrome-plated to protect against corrosion while the jaws are anodized black. Comes complete with screw center, locking levers, T-handled hex wrench for jaw screws and 8 extra jaw screws. Everything is secure in a fitted plastic storage/carrying case.

    Comments about WoodRiver 4 Jaw Lathe Chuck w/Case 1" x 8TPI :

    This is my first lathe chuck and yes I know there are other more expensive chucks out there but this chuck fits my needs perfectly !! Kind of heavy for as small as it is but this thing works GREAT !! I make a lot of pens so I also purchased the pen jaws and wow what a difference in the drilling of the blanks ! This chuck will also hold larger pieces which is nice ! I will buy some of the other accessories later on, I have what I need for now. I really like the price of this chuck as compared to the others! I can't believe I waited that long to get one of these ! If you are looking into getting a chuck for your lathe you really need to check this one out !! Yes, it does tighten with the little tommy bars but I don't mind this at all !!!

    Comments about WoodRiver 4 Jaw Lathe Chuck w/Case 1" x 8TPI :

    I have used this chuck for over a year and it has worked flawlessly to hold 12" bowls to 1" acorn birdhouses. My only wish is that it had more options for accessories as in pen blank jaws would be great!!

    Great chuck for a novice turner. Can't find fault with the chuck, used primarily for turning knobs for my Stanley handplane collection!

    Best Uses

    Comments about WoodRiver 4 Jaw Lathe Chuck w/Case 1" x 8TPI :

    Best value. Relatively inexpensive with quality and wide range of grip. A little bit of learning curve to hold your piece in place with one hand and tighten the jaws.
