More than thirty-five years ago, Axminster produced and marketed one of the world’s first four jaw self centring chucks for woodturners. Over the years, much of the development has come from the feedback and input of professional woodturners. With over three decades of experience in production and design, axminster are very well versed in the world of woodturning chucks and can provide practical, well engineered chucks to enable your turning.
The Evolution SK114 features a super-slim 114mm (4.5") diameter stainless steel body incorporating our SafetyJaw accessory mounting jaws. The ultra-compact design keeps the workpiece 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 longer accessory mounting jaws increase the contact area within the slide ways of the chuck, further minimising vibration during use. The Evolution is fully compatible with all accessory jaws and is the first of a new series of chucks and jaws. All you need to do is choose the chuck thread to suit your lathe.
