Hi, I've recently purchased an old but in very good nick union jubilee. Where can I buy a four jaw chuck , I'm pretty sure my thread size is 1 inch by 10 tpi, I'm aware some of them came with 8 tpi. Or should I buy a adaptor that will allow me to use more common sized fittings?

Hi,

You've got a nice lathe; I owned a Jubilee before buying my Graduate.

For lathe mandrel sizes please see this;

Woodturning lathe Spindle Thread Sizes

I bought a Sorby Patriot chuck for my Graduate but these are expensive even spare different sizes of jaws are also expensive.

Patriot Chuck

Buying the lathe is just the start; it's easy to run up a huge bill buying accessories. If you want to buy secondhand it could be a struggle because chucks are usually sold with their lathe. Engineering chucks are available secondhand but it's a problem getting the thread size you need.

Adaptors are excellent if you can find the size you need but even with adaptor it can be costly still having to buy a chuck.

Good luck.

Kind regards, Colin.

They haven't the chuck bodies in stock yet, but they're a good chuck. If you buy carriers for Axminster jaws it gives you the option of using either Axminster or Versachuck jaws, and if perchance you need jaws from other manufacturers there's a good chance you buy carriers to fit them as well.

Record Power do a big range of adapters for their SC4 chuck, in particular including a blank that if nothing else will do can be bored and threaded by your local friendly machinist for you.

Have a look in the for sale section. Ian was selling a couple of lathes and mentioned that he had some chucks etc to sell when the lathes had gone. He may well have some. I can't remember the username fhj........

If you go to the forums list, it is actually "marketplace". The thread is linked above though.

Morning, thanks for your reply. I'm new on here and can't find the for sale section. Where should I be looking?

Please ignore my reply, as I posted the two above answers came up on my tablet. After looking at my options I'm going to buy an adaptor and go to m33 then there's plenty of choice. When I'm up and running what ever I make first I will send you picture. Many thanks

Morning Paul, thanks, I checked out the machinery 4 wood site last night and decided to go down this route, so you've confirmed my decision. Cheers Al

I have a number of 1" 10tpi chucks if you are still after any?
I am too new to advertise them on the 'for sale' forum page. Hopefully, I can be a bit more active and then become eligible ot sell them here.

If you go down the adapter route, check it after you get it. I bought one new to adapt a record or sorby chuck (I forget) to a Jubilee and it wasn't correctly designed. The registration bore was loose on the spindle so even though the thread matched, it never centred correctly and vibrated.
Two in a row had the same defect and had to be refunded.
The thread only holds it on. It's the straight and flat sections that line it up.
