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 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.
