The arbor is an adapter that is mounted separately (Basic and Talon chucks share the same adapter). The unique taper-lock adapter makes the chuck run truer, while guaranteeing safe use of the chuck for right- or left-hand turning. The 1" × 8 tpi adapter is specially threaded for both inboard and outboard mounting.
Match the adapter to lathe brands and their headstock thread size:
- Beaver: 7/8”x14 tpi, #1 Morse taper
- Craftsman and Coronet: 3/4”x16 tpi, #1 Morse taper
- Delta and General 160: 1”x8 tpi, #2 Morse taper
- General 260: 1 1/4"x8 tpi, #2 Morse taper
- Shopsmith: 5/8” plain
If you wish to use the chuck on a different lathe, you need only purchase the appropriate adapter.
