LSC14 Longworth Style Chuck 14″ diameter
LSC14 Longworth Style Chuck 14″ diameter. This is the 14″ diameter version. Developed in Australia it is designed for the woodturner to speed up the process of finishing wood turned bowls and platters.
The re-chucking of bowls and platters for finishing or light re-shaping has always been something of a challenge for woodturners. Therefore, the Longworth style chuck makes this easy. The self-centering scroll operation therefore quickly adjusts to fit the work and tightening also only takes a few seconds.
The Longworth Chuck has been specifically designed for clamping in to a traditional 4 jaw-self-centering chuck using standard 50mm dovetail jaws. Thus also eliminating the time and hassle of removing and remounting chuck jaws needed when using regular re-chucking jaws. Non-marking premium silicone grippers also provide pliable yet firm gripping power. The precision cut plates provide ultimate performance and reliability. Also it is recommended that a maximum speed is 600 rpm is applies when using the chuck. The chuck size indicates the minimum lathe swing for which it is intended. Maximum external gripping capacity is approximately 2″ smaller than chuck diameter.
