Introduction...
The ever-expanding range of Axminster woodturning chucks now covers almost every type of
work-holding requirement, from dolls’ house chair legs just a few millimetres in diameter to two-foot
diameter bowls weighing twenty kilograms or more. Precision made in high grade steel, the chucks and
their associated accessories have been developed over the years, in many cases in conjunction with
our professional turning friends, to cover almost every eventuality likely to be encountered by the
amateur or professional alike. One of our guiding principles has always been to ensure that as many
different operations as possible can be carried out without removing the chuck from the lathe. This
approach, combined with the provision of multiple gripping diameters on most of the jaws, gives
minimum outlay coupled with maximum flexibility of operation.
Apart from the Junior, which uses engineering end mill collets to hold small work pieces, all the
Axminster chucks use the tried and tested scroll mechanism to control the jaw travel. This system
provides the dual benefits of a nominal half inch of radial movement of each jaw in expansion and
contraction and a security of grip onto
the work which is unrivalled by any
of the collet style chucks on the
market.

Basic Safety for Machine Tools...
Good Working Practices/Safety
The following suggestions will enable you to observe good working practices, keep yourself and fellow
workers safe and maintain your tools and equipment in good working order.
!
WARNING!! KEEP TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT OUT OF THE REACH OF YOUNG CHILDREN
BASIC SAFETY FOR MACHINE TOOLS
KNOW YOUR MACHINE TOOL
Read and understand the owner's manual and labels affixed to the tool. Learn its application and limitations
as well as specific potential hazards peculiar to the tool.
EARTH ALL TOOLS
All Machines should be equipped with an approved 3 core cable. The green and yellow conductor in the
cable is the earth wire.
NEVER connect the green and yellow wire to a live terminal.
KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE
Keep all guards in place. They are there for your protection and do not interfere with the correct operation of
your machine.
REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES
Form the habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from the machine
before turning it on.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN
Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents. Floors must not be slippery due to oil or sawdust. Make sure
you clean up any waste materials on completion of work.
AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS
Do not use power tools in damp or wet locations or expose them to rain. Keep work area well lit. Provide
adequate space surrounding the work area.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY
All visitors should be kept a safe distance from work area. Children are naturally curious; therefore ensure
they are closely supervised when they are near the work area.
MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD-PROOF
Many machines have lockable switches that can be secured with a small padlock or have a removable key.
Please make use of them to prevent unauthorised operation of your machines.
DO NOT FORCE TOOL
It will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed. Develop a patient approach to the
work, you will get better results in the finished product.
WEAR PROPER CLOTHING
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewellery that can catch in moving parts of machinery.
Non-slip footwear with steel toecaps is recommended. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
Roll up long sleeves to above the elbow.
SECURE WORK
Where applicable use clamps or a vice to hold work. This frees both hands to operate tool correctly and
thus produces better results.
DIRECTION OF FEED
Feed work into a blade or cutter against the direction of rotation of the blade or cutter only. This will reduce
the danger of kick back which is a serious hazard. Similarly, when using a lathe, feed the cutting edge of the
tool against the direction of rotation!
USE SAFETY GOGGLES AND FACE PROTECTION
Wear safety goggles (complying to relevant standards) at all times. Normal spectacles only have impact
resistant lenses and are NOT sufficient. Also use face or dust masks if the cutting operation is dusty
(connection of machine to a dust extractor is preferred). Always wear ear defenders for cutting, sawing,
planing or routing operations. Your hearing can be permanently damaged if exposed to high noise
levels for long periods of time.
03
Basic Safety for Machine Tools...
DO NOT OVERREACH
Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
MAINTAIN TOOL WITH CARE
Keep tools sharp and clean at all times for the best and safest performance. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions for lubricating and sharpening and also for changing accessories.
DISCONNECT POWER FROM THE TOOL
Before servicing or when changing accessories always disconnect the power supply to avoid
accidental starting.
AVOID ACCIDENTAL START UP
Make sure switch is in "OFF" position before connecting the machine to the power supply.
USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES
Consult the owner's manual for details of any manufacturer's accessories or contact your
supplier for details of recommended accessories. Follow the instructions that accompany
the accessory. The improper use of accessories may cause hazards. The fitting of
non-recommended accessories may also cause hazards.
CHECK DAMAGED PARTS
Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be carefully
checked to ensure that it will operate properly and perform its intended function. Check
for alignment of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting and any other conditions that
may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired
or replaced. A parts list is to be found at the back of your operator's manual.
NEVER LEAVE A MACHINE RUNNING UNATTENDED
ALWAYS turn power off. Do not leave machine until it comes to a complete stop.
DRUGS, ALCOHOL AND MEDICATION
NEVER operate tools whilst under the influence of drugs, alcohol or after taking medication.
USE THE CORRECT TOOL
Do not force a tool or attachment to do a job for which it was not designed. This is
dangerous workshop practice.
Specific Safety Instructions for the Chuck...
When using this chuck please follow the basic safety precautions
and observe the following specific precautions:DO ensure the chuck is screwed fully onto the headstock shaft.
DO ensure that all accessory fittings are secure before starting your lathe.
DO start the machine in a slow speed if the work is unbalanced.
DO make sure the chuck key or ‘C’ spanner are removed from the chuck before switching on.
DO be aware that when gripping large diameter workpieces that the jaws may extend beyond
the boundary of the chuck body.
DO keep your hands clear until the chuck has stopped rotating.
DO NOT attempt to exceed the normal capacity of any jaw fitted to the chuck as the jaws
may not fully engage the scroll if they are extended too far.
DO NOT run your lathe in reverse.

A Brief History...
When we started producing the Axminster Chuck, we ran into the immediate problem, “which
lathe should it fit?” So that we had greater flexibility, and could give faster response times to
our customers’ orders, the original chuck was manufactured as a ‘chuck body’ with an
interchangeable selection of threaded inserts to cater for the diverse range of headstock
mandrel threads produced by all the different lathe manufacturers. However, recent research
into our sales records showed us that approximately 90% of our sales have been for chucks
with the T01 or the T04M inserts. We decided that if we produced the chucks with the bosses
pre-threaded to these sizes we would be able to cut production costs and pass this saving on
to our customers. This we have done, (including passing on the cost saving!). However, we
realise that there is still that diversity of headstock mandrel threads ‘out there’, so we still
carry stock of the chuck body and a large range of the different threaded inserts, so everyone
can enjoy the wide scope and flexibility of the AXMINSTER TURNING SYSTEM no matter
whose lathe they turn on.
!
Note. A comprehensive list of the generally available lathes with their
headstock mandrel threads is available in the ‘Woodturners’ section of our
catalogue.
Improving & Expanding the Range...
Demand, progress and innovation have resulted in the continued improvement and
expansion of our existing product line. The introduction of anti-corrosion plating has also
furnished us with a distinctive new livery and a mammoth investment in our machine shop
has enabled us to improve machine finishes and maintain tolerances whilst working at higher
rates. The introduction of the integral mounting thread has also allowed us to decrease
production times.
We have also expanded the range to include an 80mm keyed version of the standard
Axminster Chuck, as well as keyless versions of both the 100mm and the 80mm chucks.
The introduction of the 80mm version has also brought about the production of a smaller
(physical size) range of the mounting jaws, for use with the smaller chucks on the smaller
lathes. The three new chucks are available with integral mounting threads T01 (3/4" x 16 t.p.i.)
or T04M (1" x 8 t.p.i.). All 80mm jaws will fit all of the larger chucks in the Axminster range.
Lathe Thread Information...
This table lists all the stock thread types which can be used
when ordering any of the threaded items, such as chucks,
chuck backplates, faceplates and screw chucks, from the
catalogue. If you are uncertain about which thread to specify
please ring our Technical Department who will be pleased to
help. They will need to know either the make of the lathe or
the dimensions of the lathe spindle as shown in the diagram.
The column heading numbers refer to the dimensions in the

Axminster Clubman Chucks...
AXMINSTER CLUBMAN K8 80mm
In response to a demand for a smaller chuck for smaller lathes we have brought out this brand new
product, an 80mm diameter version of the familiar Woodturner’s Chuck. The Clubman K8 comes with
mounting jaws fitted as standard with a key tightening system. The smaller 80mm outside diameter
makes the chuck easier to handle, lighter in weight and generally more suitable for smaller lathes such
as our own AWVSL900,AWVSL1000 & M950 models. The mounting thread, which will be limited to a
choice of 3/4" x 16tpi or 1" x 8 tpi only, is machined directly into the chuck body for convenience of
manufacture. Small in size it may be but the Clubman K8 is built to the same
high standards as its bigger brother and can be relied upon to give the
same unrivalled performance and
durability.

Axminster Clubman Chucks...
AXMINSTER CLUBMAN K10 100mm
This is the familiar Woodturner’s Chuck but now with a new name and a flashy new livery of nickel
plated body and mounting jaws. There is a practical reason for the plating, not just to improve the
appearance but to give greater protection against corrosion. Hard though it may be to understand,
some woodturners allow their precious equipment to languish in a damp workshop and gather rust.
The other change, not quite so obvious at first glance, is that on the majority of the new chucks the
mounting thread will be machined directly into the body of the chuck and not into a loose insert as has
been the case until recently. Our experience dictates that we will produce the K10 Clubman Chuck with
two integral threads, 3/4" x 16tpi & 1" x 8tpi. This will have no effect on the operation of the chuck but
will make life easier for our production department and will help to hold
costs down. The less common threads will be available as before by
specifying the appropriate threaded insert. (A comprehensive list of
threaded inserts and their relevant
stock codes is printed in the
woodturning section of
our catalogue).

AXMINSTER Goliath 125mm
The Goliath woodturning chuck is the largest chuck in our range with a diameter of 125mm (5”) having
a super size scroll that will give great power, along with a large jaw movement of 40mm making the
range of timber it can handle extensive. The chuck uses our well established, patented, accessory
mounting jaws which are standard throughout the range of Axminster chucks
allowing the full range of Axminster jaws to be used. Supplied with a
long chuck key, the chuck has a bright nickel plated body and
threaded boss (available in common 4 thread sizes). The
chuck is manufactured in Axminster using the same high
level of computer technology
as our other chucks.

Axminster Junior Chuck...
AXMINSTER JUNIOR
The Axminster Junior chuck is the first true collet chuck to
be produced with woodturners specifically in mind. In this
chuck we use our successful ER engineering collets
which are precision machined to grip evenly along their
whole length without marking the work. The chuck is
supplied with three collets: 6 to 7mm, 10 to 11mm and 12 to
13mm and there is a range of additional ones available which
together give a gripping range from 1mm to 13mm diameter.
The collet is tightened by means of a nut which has both a knurled
section and spanner flats to give two tightening options. The Junior chuck
has been designed with the miniaturist in mind and its ability to handle long lengths of dowel (in
conjunction with a hollow headstock) make it particularly useful for repeat production of small items.

AXMINSTER BUTTON JAW
These jaws use eight conical rubber buttons
to securely pull back work onto the jaws.
They are intended for use with bowls
up to 9" in diameter. However, they
may not be suitable for bowls with
very thin edges as the pressure may
deform the bowl edges. The buttons
are white rubber so as not to mark
the workpiece and are "dovetailed"
to hold the workpiece firmly against
the plates.

CHUCK REMOVAL SPANNER
Order no: 340220
One
important
lesson for
woodturners to learn is not to use the
chuck key for removing the chuck from
the headstock; doing this can damage the
hole in the chuck as well as risking
breaking the key. This C spanner has
been specially produced for the 100mm
Clubman, Goliath and previous model
Woodturner’s range of chucks. This
should be classed as essential equipment
for all users of these chucks.
Mounting the Chuck to the Lathe...
The threaded insert of the chuck is precisely machined to fit the headstock of your lathe and
the chuck should screw firmly and fully into position. It may be necessary to restrain the
headstock shaft whilst finally screwing the chuck home and a suitably sized paper washer
placed on the headstock spindle will greatly assist chuck removal. Always ensure that the
power supply to the lathe is turned off and the power supply plug is removed from the power
source when fitting or removing the chuck. Never fit or remove the chuck by running the
lathe and holding the chuck, serious injury could result. To unscrew the chuck, the headstock
shaft should be locked or restrained and the chuck removed if necessary using a strap
wrench to grip the chuck. Great care should be exercised when removing the chuck from the
headstock as the sudden weight drop could cause damage or injury. If your lathe has a
reversing switch, great care should be exercised as there is no locking facility fitted on this
chuck and it will unscrew and come off the headstock spindle if the lathe spindle is reversed.
Changing Chuck Jaws...
The Accessory Mounting Jaws carry a register ring segment and are tapped with two M5
threaded holes. This register ring segment fits into a curved slot on the back face of all chuck
jaws (stepped jaws excepted), the jaws being secured with two M5 socket screws in each
segment. When fitting jaw segments to the Accessory Mounting Jaws leave the M5 securing
screws 1/2 a turn slack, firmly close the chuck jaws so that all jaws are touching then finally
tighten the screws securing the jaws ensuring correct alignment and equal spacing of the jaw
quadrants.

Maintenance...
As mentioned previously, there is minimal maintenance required. In the event of the chuck
requiring attention it will generally be due to a build up of dust. Firstly, remove any jaws
mounted on the accessory mounts, unscrew the chuck until the accessory mounting jaws
come out from the chuck body. You will now be able to see the scroll ring inside the body
and by turning the chuck key the whole of the scroll ring will become visible. By using a
small paintbrush and a suitable cleaning fluid you will be able to clean the inside of the
chuck body. Once this is done, just re-Iubricate using light machine oil, thin grease or a
synthetic dry lubricant which is usually available in an aerosol spray format.
When refitting the accessory mounting jaws you will see that they are individually stamped
with an identifying number(1 to 4). There are also position numbers engraved on the chuck
body which basically tells you to put the accessory mounting jaws into the body in an
anti-clockwise rotation. Firstly, turn the chuck key clockwise until the scroll outer end is about
to enter a recess. Insert the No I jaw and exert light pressure and turn the chuck key until
the scroll outer end begins to enter the second recess. Fit jaw No 2 and repeat the process
for jaw Nos 3 & 4. Now completely close the chuck to ensure conformation of correct fitting.
