Amazing Ladle Chuck 

When ordering please indicate spindle preference; 1" x 8tpi, or 1-1/4" x 8tpi. I need to know this in order to ship the correct chuck.

Kitchen Ladles have always been wildly popular gift and craft items. This version combines a very simple spindle turning project with a straight forward hollow form or bowl turning project. The results always please whoever receives these useful gifts. Hand turned wooden ladles also make ideal craft fair items.

Holding the spherical bowl safely and securely to hollow the inside has always been a difficult situation. The brand new Amazing Ladle Chuck makes it fast, simple and easy. A set of 5 templates is included to guide you in turning a perfect sphere in exactly the right size. The Amazing Ladle Chuck threads directly onto your lathe spindle for a secure hold. Select either 1" x 8 tpi or 1.25" x 8 tpi for your lathe. (Metric sizes available by special order). 

The unique design of the Top Holding Plate acts as a counterbalance and eliminates most vibration. Made from HDPE plastic, the Amazing Ladle Chuck is rugged and durable and is designed to withstand a lifetime of hard use. The edges have been rounded so as not to mark the bowl of your ladle during clamping. The cut-out notched area in the Top Holding Plate allows room for the handle socket or for the handle during hollowing. 

If you are looking for a range of items which make wonderful gifts any time of the year, the Amazing Ladle Chuck is worth your consideration. This system comes with 5 top plates for ladles sized 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4". It includes a corresponding set of templates matched to each top plate helping to assure your success.

Amazing Off-Center Chuck Type 2 


No Other Off-Center Chuck Can Utilize 4 Jaw Scroll Chucks for Work Holding! The Amazing Off-Center Chuck™ is now only available as a stand-alone chuck.

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, candlesticks, chair legs and much more. Imagine that this full-sized off-center chuck is able to accept full-sized four jaw scroll chucks, faceplates, 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.

I have re-designed the original Amazing Off-Center Chuck and it is now more versatile and easier to use. The Unique Full Sized Amazing Off-Center Chuck is available with two different thread pitches, 1x8 and 1-1/4x8. Or, if necessary, a combination of the two spindle sizes.

Various off-center chucks are available in the marketplace 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 as the Amazing Off-Center Chuck does. It is also quite a bit more expensive than the Amazing Off-Center Chuck™

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 2" resulting in slightly more than 4 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.

Notes: The Amazing Off-Center Chuck is sold as a stand-alone unit. You no longer need to own an Amazing Doughnut Chuck to use the Amazing Off-Center Chuck Type 2.
