lathe chuck on mill table

Post by retiredmachinist » Thu Dec 16, 2010 12:05 pm

Here is a pic of the spare 3 jaw Southbend chuck I bolted onto a flatplate and had the welder make two slots on an arc. Much more stable than a vice, I used it at work before retiring.

We had to cut slots across shafts and our mill vice did not have V's in the jaw to keep the shaft square. This way you were always on center. I haven't used it for anything else as yet.

Thanks Ken for the heads up, I re- pasted the link to my PictureTrail site onto my signature, I hope it works for you, Henry.
