The Eccentric Chuck is designed and manufactured by Vicmarc Machinery and it expands the possibilities for off centre turning.
The main feature of the chuck is its infintely variable axis setting capacity. With the range of 0 to 30mm each setting gives a different turning axis. In addition to this the rotating cup chuck allows you to create an even wider variety of shapes, depending on the chosen axis. The optional ball chuck allows the workpiece to be swivelled up to 15 degrees off the z-axis for even more flexible turning. (see diagram)
Being able to turn on a variety of centres without having to remove the workpiece from the chuck enables the creative turner to make very personal and original multi centered pieces.
Manufactured from K1045 (medium tensile steel - 45 tonne) the chucks have a higher durability ensuring a longer life and a very high quality finish. Vicmarc chucks are guaranteed for 12 months and a large variety of accessories are available to suit them.
