The Robert Sorby Eccentric Chuck is the most sophisticated chuck for multi-centre turning.
Ease and accuracy of adjustment (without removing the workpiece from the chuck) is provided by the unique offset boss which accommodates the three different driving components on which to mount your workpieces, viz:-
1 - Screwchuck
2 - Ball drive and socket
3 - Faceplate
The Eccentric Chuck provides the means of driving from the headstock with or without tailstock support. The boss can be off-set incrementally by 1¼" (30mm) from zero datum point.
Like all Robert Sorby tools the Patriot is proudly manufactured in Britain. Fitted with smooth action 2" (50mm) jaws which have internal and external dovetail and gripper teeth to ensure work is held more securely. It also supplied with a screw chuck and an insert* which enable it to fit the vast majority of woodworking lathes.
