Hi, I'm looking for an engineering chuck to fit the inboard side of the Myford ML8

Ideally 4" self centering with both internal and external stepped jaws but 3 jaw and other sizes considered

Heres hoping, thanks

The Versachuck has optional engineering jaws, it can be supplied with a 1" 12tpi backplate which is what you need I think for an ML8. Also as it's a woodturning chuck it would be a useful addition anyway for woodturning.

Hi there, thanks yes I've seen that - it is an option but I already have several wood turning chucks. Was hoping for an older metalworking chuck but may end up going down that route or similar. Unfortunately Axminster don't support 1x12tpivbecause I have their chucks and could happily buy another but, whilst the versachuck is versatile I don't see myself paying out for lots of carriers to use with my existing jaw sets (Axminster & Supernova)

You have the same thread as the more popular ML7 metal working lathe, so might be worth looking in that area aswell.

Hi minilathe, Thanks for that - I think the ML7 is 1 1/8" X 12 tpi so not the same as the ML8 - Myford do sell a thread adaptor to use ML7 chucks on the ML8, but it's not my first choice as it will leave the chuck further away from the headstock.
