Taking the best features of our Axminster chuck designs over the past 35 years, we have, in our view, produced our best woodturning chuck ever.
The Evolution SK100 chuck is designed to maximise work holding options. It is a chuck to enhance your woodturning, making it easier, accurate and more enjoyable.
The Evolution SK100 features a super-slim 100mm diameter CNC machined, stainless steel body incorporating our SafetyJaw© accessory mounting jaws. The Evolution SK100 is fully compatible with all previous accessory jaws and dovetail jaws.
These chucks won’t rust, either from condensation in a cold workshop or the sap from green wood. Stainless steel body is machined to exact tolerances for a perfect fit of both jaws and lathe spindle. The scroll register and thread are cut in one operation, which ensures no errors arise in concentricity. The jaws are machined to within 2 microns, giving an accuracy worthy of super precision status. Three hardened pinions ensure the chuck is always accessible, from any angle, to tighten with the key. The key has a square end for a positive location in the pinion and easy operation.
This chuck package includes a set of easy to use dovetail jaws (size C), into which you can also mount either the matching faceplate ring or the screw chuck.
All you need to do is choose the chuck thread to suit your lathe.
All of the components are CNC machined in our workshop in Axminster giving us total control so that the chucks we produce are supreme in terms of longevity and quality. Made entirely in Axminster, England.
Note: 108807 – M33x3.5mm (with Euro ASR groove) Chuck is only suitable for use on lathes with an M33x3.5 EURO standard (ASR) spindle and requires the 109370 ASR Locking Ring in order for the chuck to be run in reverse.
Cam locks secure both the tailstock and tool rest holder, and both are easy to move along the bed.
Mounted on rubber feet and supplied with Axminster drive and tailstock centres, 200mm tool rest plus a 100mm faceplate.
