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.
Featuring a specialised dovetail profile, these jaws are ideal for turning large bowls, green timber and hollow vessels. They combine the profile of our previously popular 100 mm dovetail jaws with a deep body and internal teeth to improve versatility. The outer dovetail jaws are ideal for large bowls or platters, particularly when gripping onto a spigot and the deep internal toothed body is ideal for large spigots of large hollow vessels.
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 jaws are fantastically effective for drilling pen blanks. They eliminate the need for a drill press and offer much more accurate results and the deep grip to all four sides ensures incredible holding power. Drilling on the lathe means the feed speed of the drill bit is under your complete control, meaning a superior finish can be achieved on a wide range of materials. These jaws are also useful for working on small finials and similar projects as in addition to their strong grip, the work piece is moved forward from the chuck, allowing greater access
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.
