Unique Full Sized Amazing Off-Center Chuck™
No Other Off-Center Chuck Can Utilize 4 Jaw Scroll Chucks for Work Holding!
Imagine an off-center chuck large enough to hold full sized plates, platters, wall art, as well as pendants, goblets, turned lidded boxes, winged bowls, candle sticks, chair legs and much more. Imagine that this full sized off-center chuck is able to accept full sized four jaw scroll chucks, face plates, screw chucks; in fact anything you can currently mount onto your regular lathe spindle can be mounted onto the Amazing Off-Center Chuck from the Amazing Doughnut Chuck™ people.
The Unique Full Sized Amazing Off-Center Chuck is available it two sizes and two different thread pitches, 1x8 and 1-1/4x8. Offered in a variety of configurations, you may acquire exactly what you need to meet your specific turning requirements. If you already own the Amazing Doughnut Chuck™, 12” or 16” your Amazing Off-Center Chuck is available as an add-on accessory.
The Amazing Off-Center Chuck™ is also available as a stand-alone chuck, or as part of the complete Amazing Doughnut Chuck™ system. This is a very limited pre-production run available for a very limited time until Dec 15th, 2016 as we will be traveling on the Woodworking Show circuit through April of 2017.
Various off-center chucks are available in the market place but deal with smaller pieces for the most part. I offer a different off-center jig suitable for pendants and other smaller items. Robert Sorby offers an off-center unit, but it has no accommodation for using a full sized scroll chuck like the Amazing Off-Center Chuck does. It is also quite a bit more expensive than the Amazing Off-Center Chuck™
Video clips and full length videos are planned for the summer of 2017. This offering is intended for those who are already familiar with off-center turning and need little if any instruction. If you are interested in learning more about this fascinating technique, search the internet for videos on off center turning, they are numerous. All off-center chucks are intended to be operated at much slower speeds when turning something which is unbalanced and not turning concentrically. SLOW DOWN! Begin turning dead slow and increase the speed incrementally.
The maximum off-center setting is slightly over 1" resulting in slightly more than 2 inches out of round. That is a lot! Each adjusting hole is designed at 10 degrees and will result in approximately 0.25" offset. For those times when one needs to index their turning (pendants and platter rims for example) I will be introducing a very affordable and easy to use indexing system shortly for use with the user supplied 4 jaw scroll chuck.
