This heavy duty chuck is designed for large lathes (16" swing or greater) to provide maximum gripping power!
The body diameter of this chuck is 4½" (the largest currently available in our chuck family).
The chuck weighs approximately 8 lbs (fully assembled with the No. 2 Jaws). It is considerably heavier than the Talon Chuck (3.5 lbs) or Oneway Chuck (4.5 lbs) which makes it a very desirable chuck for large size lathe owners who want an exceptionally powerful grip for turning larger pieces.
The Stronghold Chuck is operated by a key. Key operation provides two major advantages:
One handed operation
Solid holding power
5 to 1 ratio assures powerful clamping
Note: If your lathe is less than a 16" swing, we recommend our Talon Chuck.
KEY FEATURES INCLUDE:
Single-Hand Key Operation
Our Patented Over-Extension Safety System
4-Jaw Scroll Chuck
Rugged Base Jaw Design
