As a result of Nev's post a few days ago

https://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/forums/owch-t57267.html

1. Rutlands were inundated with orders and sold the lot
2. I got my card out of the fridge, where it's been sitting since someone recommended polishing mops, and ordered a chuck and set of all it's jaws.

Mine arrived this morning =D>

Mine has 2 x 1"x 8tpi insets #-o

My lathe has 3/4" x 16tpi spindle :cry:

Rutlands are very sorry, will obviously take it all back etc, but don't have any inserts.

Don't suppose anyone got one with 2x 3/4 x 16 inserts :?:

Mine arrived today so I'll have a look for you when I get back into the workshop. Don't know how many they had in stock but glad I didn't hang around, I also ordered all of the jaws which should give me a few more options, I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of all of the items when they arrived.

thanks to those both looking and offering assistance.

as you Steve, and I think Nev, I got all the jaws available hence my with to pursue a solution!

generally 3/4 x 16 doesn't represent a likely upgrade path so I have hopes I can find one that is surplus to requirements; it also came with a spare set of screws and I was planning on passing a couple of those to a fellow forumite who is going to have to drill at least one out of his chuck in order to use it going forward.....the plan was so simple :)

Jump's, just popped out to the workshop and am afraid to say that both of mine are different so am unable to help. Hope you find one though.

Can you post a photo of the insert that you have, the reason I ask is that I have an insert from a chuck that I think came from Rutlands but I am not sure. It is a 3/4 x 16 and if it is the same you are welcome to it.

They show reasonably clearly in this web image of a similar chuck



If the female bit is 3/4 x 16 then I would seem to need the male to be either 1x8 or 1 1/2 x 8 and I can make this work - I think - as I detailed in my other thread on thread confusion; well at least no-ones suggested it isn't 1 1/2 x 8 for those measurements!

Quick camera shot of one of the 1 x 8tpi females I got



first time I have uploaded to flikr from my phone =D>

Really appreciate you having a look - almost become a mission because the complete jaw set look really well cut, and the flat jaws mean I can retire the ply ones etc

Well at least I know what I need now, as well as a little history.

The X450 is a Barracuda, which is a copy of the Supernova.....

RS developed a female chuck thread to enable the majority of lathe spindles to be accomadated with an insert - this is known as m38 x 3, but doesn't actually represent any spindle (hence my earlier confusion about size).

So, I can basically get an RS insert for the Patriot/Supernova with a 3/4" x 16tpi thread.

The downside is that they cost just a tiny bit less than the chuck....

I bought the Rutlands X700 chuck and it came with a 3/4" x 16tpi threaded adaptor is that what you need.

If you let me know and your welcome to have it.

Jim,

That may work. The X700 is directly threaded at 1" x 8tpi I believe, so I could use that into the 1 x 8 bush I have to complete the job.

Put another way, if your lathe is 1 x 8tpi spindle then 'yes please'!

EDIT - this will work; it's the correct size.
