Though typically used for metalworking, a collet chuck is also well suited to woodturning applications.
Valued for its ability to accurately grip small hardwood blanks without marring surfaces, it also allows stock to be removed and remounted with repeatable concentricity — a factor important for sanding and finishing a workpiece.
Usable with or without tailstock support, the machined steel chuck mounts on a 1" × 8 tpi spindle and includes two wrenches for securing/removing the nut. The chuck is also useful for holding mandrels, small custom face plates, and metal turning blanks.
Precision-ground collets are available separately.
This is a well-made tool suitable for mid- to large-size lathes.
