4-jaw independent chuck (includes hex key, not pictured)



Product Description

These chucks have four advantages over 3-jaw chucks.

  • They can be used to hold irregularly shaped parts
  • They can be used to center parts with a great deal of accuracy
  • 4-jaw chucks can be used to deliberately hold a part off-center
  • They can clamp stock tighter

This is a valuable asset when machining cams, crankshafts and similar parts. The main disadvantage of the 4-jaw independent chuck is that the jaws must be set individually, adding considerable setup time.

The jaws are reversible to accommodate larger stock. Like the Sherline 3-jaw chucks, the 4-jaw chucks can be used to clamp either externally or internally. Although we recommend the 3-jaw chuck for standard lathe projects, the 4-jaw chuck is considered the accessory that could add the most versatility to your machine. A clamping groove allows the chuck to hold parts for milling.
