The Viper2 chuck is the smallest chuck from the Charnwood Viper range. A 2.75″ sized scroll chuck, with the jaws adjusted by a geared mechanism for simple one handed operation. Self centring, high precision design. Ideal for Mini sized lathes and upwards. The fully enclosed design prevents the build up of chips and dust inside the gear mechanism.
The chuck fits directly onto lathes with headstock thread size 1″ x 8tpi. With optional adaptors available in 3/4″ x 16tpi and M33 x 3.5mm .
The standard dovetail jaws can grip the workpiece both internally or externally depending on the style and shape of the piece to be turned.
Pin jaws allow smaller pieces to held than the standard jaws. The inside is smooth and parallel, the outside is serrated for maximum grip.
The Stepped jaws have a serrated edge both internally and externally. They give great flexibility by combining standard sized jaws and pin jaws.
The Wide jaws have a serrated edge both internally and externally and can grip much larger pieces than the standard jaws.
The Face Plate ring has a 65mm outside diameter and has a dovetail shaped inside which can be gripped by using the standard Viper2 jaws.
The Drive Centre allows spindles to be turned without removing your chuck from the lathe.
We also include a wood screw which clamps into the centre of the chuck for the initial mounting of bowl blanks.
T-Handle square drive for locking the jaws.
T-handled hex key for swapping the jaws.
The storage case has a foam liner to keep your chuck and all the accessories safe and ready to use.
