Changing chuck jaws is a joy
nr. Ithaca, NY
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.
