PATRIOT Woodturning Chuck
The all new British manufactured Patriot woodturning chuck, which has been skilfully designed and manufactured by Robert Sorby, after carefully listening to the woodturner and his and hers requirements and what they want from the woodturning chuck.
This chuck features a smooth 1” (25mm) of movement in expansion and contraction, built-in-safety features including the unique silicon band. All jaws have an internal and external dovetail and extra gripper teeth. It is lightweight and compact but capable of coping with any project.
Together with an extensive range of optional jaws and accessories the Patriot chuck allows the woodturner to produce all of his or hers favourite projects.
The Patriot chuck comes complete and ready to use with following:
• Safety band – This unique feature is made from silicon rubber and is designed to protect from any injury caused by accidental contact with the outer edge of the rotating chuck.
• Rear cover – This is an aluminium back plate to ensure the main gearing of the Patriot chuck is kept dust free. Allowing easy access inside the chuck for maintenance and servicing.
• 2” (50mm) Jaws – Standard jaws fitted with internal and external dovetail. Gripper teeth for additional holding of awkward pieces of wood.
• Wood screw – A very positive self-threading wood screw. The body has anti-rotation flats and a location recess to guarantee a positive hold in the chuck jaws.
• Chuck key – Large moulded handle for a positive grip. Ball ended for easy access around large projects.
• Hexagonal keys – The 4mm key is for use on the jaw screws. The 3mm key is for the insert retention screw.
• Lathe spindle thread adaptor options – When purchasing a Patriot chuck you will require a lathe spindle thread adaptor which is available as a Chuck insert or Chuck exert. A range of inserts with internal threads to suit most woodturning lathes are available up to a spindle thread size of 1 ¼”. These are screwed in to the body of the chuck and held in place by the insert retention screw. Inserts can be interchanged when upgrading lathes. If your lathe is over 1 ¼” you have two options in either 1 ½” x 6 dual thread or M33 x 3.5mm thread. Please contact this office for more details.
So if in the future you need to upgrade and change your lathe and if the thread is of a different size to your old lathe, there is no need to have to spend all the money again needed to buy a new chuck, with the new Patriot chuck all you require, is to replace the thread adaptor/Chuck insert to suit the thread size of your new lathe. If you are unsure of the thread adaptor size requirements to suit your lathe, or if you require further information on this chuck, simply email this office with the name, make or model of your lathe and we will get back to you with your requirements as soon as possible.
