Decades In Development

It’s been nearly 40 years since we first designed and developed our woodturning chuck and over those years we’re proud to have become experts in the world of woodturning.

Our Axminster Woodturning Evolution Chuck Systems are a true example of our consistent efforts to ensure we continually develop and produce innovative tools for the woodturner. Designed, developed and manufactured with pride in Axminster, UK, the chuck systems are devised to maximise work holding on the lathe. They have been cleverly thought out and are now used by professional turners worldwide.

The Axminster Woodturning Evolution SK100 Chuck is the latest to join the range and is, in our view, our best chuck yet. Super slim, incredibly accurate and compatible with all of our previous accessory and dovetail jaws, it’s the perfect way to celebrate our woodturning heritage.

Made in Axminster, UK

Designed, developed and manufactured entirely in our state of the art manufacturing facility in Axminster. This gives us complete control in ensuring the chucks we produce are supreme in terms of quality, accuracy and longevity.

Manufactured to last

Due to moisture in wood and in workshops, over time standard chucks can corrode. That’s why the Evolution SK100 body is manufactured entirely from Stainless Steel which prevents the chuck from rusting.

Super Precision As Standard

The Evolution SK100 is machined to tolerance, ensuring a perfect fit for both the jaws and the lathe mandrel. Other chucks on the market are often plated, meaning that the chuck is manufactured purposefully undersized and then the plating process brings it into the right tolerances; a process that’s far less precise.

By machining the scroll register and cutting the thread all in one operation, concentricity is an absolute given. Not only that, but our jaws are machined to within 2 microns. That’s why we’re confident we’ve got accuracy worthy of super precision status.

A Smooth Operator

The standard Evolution SK100 chuck is 50mm deep and is designed to sit as close to the headstock bearings as the mandrel will allow. This minimises vibration and gives a much smoother turn, allowing for faster and cleaner cuts. Not only is this extremely important when turning large hollow forms, it’s also good engineering practice and does not overload or test the bearings in any way.

Reverse locking is available on the M33 x 3.5mm chuck. This is achieved with unique yet simple facial locking screws which can be dedicated to the lathe to ensure that the lathe spindle register is not damaged in any way.

Steeped In History

In 1984, we used our engineering backgrounds to design our first woodturning chuck. Created to be the ideal chuck for a woodturning lathe, we automatically preferred a scroll chuck. Three jaw chucks meant triangular stock would be needed, and with that being impractical for woodworkers, the four jaw chuck system was born

It wasn’t long before we moved into exploring accessories. Engineering style jaws were both dangerous and very limited. So we devised a style of mounting four quadrants of a profiled disc. We called these jaws and to this day, those jaws are still compatible with all chucks that we manufacture. This continuity is highly important to us; the accessories you buy over the years need to work with any and every chuck that we sell today.

Different to other manufacturers, our design was based around interchangeable sets of jaws utilising accessory mounting jaws to allow you to swap between sets with ease. This was in comparison to other makers who relied upon just the single set of jaws, meaning you had to change eight screws every time you wanted to change those profiled quadrants.

We never anticipated the woodturning chuck market growing to the size it has. And inevitably along the way, our original chucks have been copied over and over. However, we’re proud to keep tweaking and developing our chuck systems, ensuring they’re still at the forefront of precision, safety and design even after all of these years.

The Evolution SK100 features a super-slim 100mm diameter CNC machined, stainless steel body incorporating our SafetyJaw© accessory mounting jaws. The Evolution SK100 is fully compatible with all previous accessory jaws and dovetail jaws.

These chucks won’t rust, either from condensation in a cold workshop or the sap from green wood. Stainless steel body is machined to exact tolerances for a perfect fit of both jaws and lathe spindle. The scroll register and thread are cut in one operation, which ensures no errors arise in concentricity. The jaws are machined to within 2 microns, giving an accuracy worthy of super precision status. Three hardened pinions ensure the chuck is always accessible, from any angle, to tighten with the key. The key has a square end for a positive location in the pinion and easy operation.

All you need to do is choose the chuck threaded to suit your lathe.

All of the components are CNC machined in our workshop in Axminster giving us total control so that the chucks we produce are supreme in terms of longevity and quality. Made entirely in Axminster, England.
