The concept and design of the Evolution SK114 chuck was born from our desire to create the best woodturning chuck possible. It features a super-slim stainless steel body incorporating newly designed longer accessory mounting jaws. These low profile jaws offer a greater contact area within the slide ways of the chuck, minimising vibration during use. The ultra-compact design keeps the work piece as close as possible to the headstock of your lathe to lessen the load on the bearings and prevent unwanted vibration during heavy stock removal. The Evolution is fully compatible with all accessory jaws and is the first of a new series of chucks and jaws. We are very proud of our new Axminster chuck which should give you many years of reliable service.
