Product Information:

Who said that there is nothing new in the woodworking industry? How about 100% American made? How about the world’s first true Chucking System with quick-change jaws for fast jaw adjustments? Step up to the Easy Chuck™ from Easy Wood Tools™, and see what innovation is all about – welcome a game changing evolution in woodturning technology! Once you see the patent pending Easy Chuck Snap-Lock Technology (SLT™), the Easy Jaws™ system and an integrated Zoom Ring™ in action, we guarantee you the Easy Chuck will change the way you view woodturning chucks. Change all four jaws in 30 seconds or less! Using the supplied jaw key tool, depress the keeper latch to release the jaw, which then effortlessly slides off the chuck body. Unlike other chucks, Easy Chuck jaws are not sequential, or position dedicated, on the chuck, but can slide into any position on the chuck body. Slide the jaw into place, listen for the “snap”, and the jaw is locked into position and ready for use. No more fumbling with screws or worrying about sequencing jaws on a chuck! Securing a workpiece with the Easy Chuck has never been easier, thanks to the innovative Zoom Ring™ technology. Spin the Zoom Ring with your fingertips, clockwise to tighten or counterclockwise to loosen, and watch how quickly the jaws reposition. Once the workpiece is “fingertip” secured in the jaws with the Zoom Ring, final tightening with the supplied T-handled chuck key ensures a secure mount. For added versatility, double set screws have been incorporated into the chuck body design so the body can be secured to the spindle for reverse sanding operations. The Easy Chuck includes Easy Chucking Screw, 1-3/8" Dovetail Jaws for gripping 1-3/8" tenons and features an overall expansion of 2". Accessory jaws, sold separately below, allow you to put the Easy Chuck through its paces with a variety of project applications – no more fasteners to worry with.

    Comments about Easy Wood Tools 4 Jaw Easy Chuck 1-1/4" x 8 TPI w/ Double Ended Easy Chucking Screw :

    The video is right, changing chuck jaws is a joy. Just push in the included release allen key and each jaw easily pops out. No need to worry about numbers and 4 or 8 screws when attaching the new jaws. Not to mention the frantic searching when you drop a screw! The T handle allen wrench allows one to really crank down on the tenon for a large bowl. Crank, rotate 180 degrees to the 2nd spot, crank - repeat until really tight. If you do just "normal" turning where you only need the #2 or 50mm jaw then you probably don't need this chuck. If you do any turning where you need to change jaw sizes then this chuck is a no brain. The ease of, and short time required, to change chuck jaws will quickly pay for the chuck: in sizing the tenon or dovetail to the work - instead of to the jaw you have installed; time & labor savings; and increased productivity. I use a Kelton coring system. So I can start with a large tenon and the large jaws then quickly switch to the smaller jaw sizes for smaller tenons as the bowl sizes go down. If I make a tenon too small then switching out jaws is only a few seconds not minutes. Or if I made the dovetail on the bowl face for a larger jaw then it takes only a few seconds to switch back to the larger jaw. So I can now chuck the larger dovetail in the bowl face to turn the tenon on the just extracted blank. I did have to create my own size chart for the various jaws so I know what size to make a tenon or dovetail.
