In response to many requests, we have increased the capacity of our larger remounting jaws, whilst ensuring they can still clear the bed of lathes with the popular 12” swing capacity and are capable of holding 275 mm (10 3/4”) diameter bowls in contraction mode. Remounting jaws are incredibly popular due to their flexibility. They work in both contraction and expansion modes and can be fitted behind other jaw sets to create bespoke set-ups to make turning more efficient. The soft stoppers are designed to hold without causing damage, making them ideal for remounting finished or partly finished objects for further work.
These jaws are a smaller version of the standard 50 mm jaws, featuring the same dovetail profile in expansion and the superb grip of the hawk beak design on contraction. Designed specifically for smaller spigots and recesses, this set is incredibly versatile and makes a great addition to any turner’s tool collection.
Featuring a specialised dovetail profile in expansion and the superb grip of the hawk beak design on contraction, these versatile jaws are a great all-round set, capable of bowl work to a good size and also spigot turning. They are supplied as standard with the SC3 and SC4 chucks.
These new jaws are ideal for heavy bowls and vases. The wide front face provides a good register for the base of the bowl or vase and the deep toothed body provides a strong grip on the spigot. The internal gripper can also be used on smaller rough green timber. Also featuring an external dovetail in expansion, it can be used for large platters. A truly versatile and solid jaw set.
These extremely flexible jaws feature internal and external dovetails for bowl work. The deep internal grip is versatile but the main benefit of these jaws is to project the work away from the chuck, allowing good tool access to the base of the timber for cleaning and shaping.
Our new pin jaws have been improved by squaring the external shoulder to allow workpieces to properly register against the back of the jaws. This is ideal for use in expansion, to grip tubes in work pieces such as pepper or salt grinders. We have also reduced the internal diameter to 9 mm, making it ideal for making finials or lace bobbins - Thereby increasing its versatility. This set is ideal for miniature turning and to grip workpieces internally without excessive damage or marking.
To complement the new pin jaws, the mini spigot jaws have also been improved. These jaws perform many of the same tasks in expansion and the extra screw hole profiles and added teeth to the outside provide tremendous grip for when this area will not be visible in the finished work piece. This set has been given a 13 mm internal diameter, making it ideal for turning strong spigots on knobs and handles, again adding to their versatility.
These nylon jaws are designed specifically to be cut with standard turning tools. They can be easily shaped to create bespoke jaws to fulfil exacting requirements and offer excellent grip without marking the work piece.
