Lathe Chucks

Work Holding/Lathe Chucks 

Chuck that Chuck Norris! With KBC Tools & Machinery's full line of lathe chucks, adapter plates, collet chucks, keys, jaws, work stops, and lathe chuck accessories from Atlas, Bison, Buck, TOS Svitavy, PBA, Kalamazoo, and TMX we have what you need to chuck it all. Tip: When choosing an adapter plate make sure you know what you are buying. Adapter plates come in a variety of finishes from rough casting, fully machined, and semi-machined. So, you might have some machining in your future before you're ready to mount your chuck again. Manual lathe chucks come in 2, 3, 4, and 6 jaw versions and forged in steel, semi-steel, and steel bodies. In North America semi-steel body chucks are the most popular for the combination of accuracy, weight, and lower cost than steel body alternatives. Power lathe chucks use pneumatic/hydraulic pressure to close chucks on CNC machines. Here's another tip: install latheguards on your lathe to help stop chips and broken tool bits from flying and ease the inspection process when OSHA or Ministry of Labor comes for a surprise visit. Keep your company and your machinists safe with latheguards from Flexbar. KBC - All Lathe Chucks...All The Time
