Robert Sorby RS60 Eccentric Chuck
The Robert Sorby RS60 Eccentric Chuck is the most sophisticated chuck for multi-centre turning. This therefore enables ease and accuracy of adjustment, without removing the workpiece from the chuck. This is provided by the unique offset boss. This accommodates the three different driving components on which to mount the workpieces: Screw chuck, Ball Drive / Socket or Faceplate.
The Eccentric Chuck also provides the means of driving from the headstock with or without tailstock support. However, the unique hexagonal ball drive/socket component also allows multiple-turning between centres. This therefore allows any angle between 0 and 20 degrees of the lathes axis.
