I am helping a widow sell off her late husbands woodturning equipment, there is this chuck which I have been told is a 'collet chuck' but that is all I know. Can somebody identify the make for me please and if possible is there a manual for it that can be downloaded from somewhere. Also if you can give me an approximate value and an opinion as to whether it will be better to sell it with the lathe (Tyme Cub) or separately. It also has another two sets of jaws. There is also a Record four jaw chuck that can be sold with the lathe if it is better to sell this one separately.

It could be a Robot chuck - they were made back in the 80s/90s I think.

The thread on the Tyme Cub is probably M20 x 2mm so not very common (I only know of the Tyme cub and little gem lathes with that thread) so you might find it easier to sell it with the lathe. Value - maybe £30 or £40

Thank you for that information Paul. I hope to be putting the lathe and a few accessories up for sale on here soon unless I find somebody locally who will take the lot.
