Record Power are well known for their comprehensive range of woodturning accessories and the RP2000 Compact Scroll Chuck is the latest addition to the range. Made from high quality steel to exacting standards, this four jaw geared scroll chuck is the ideal choice for beginners or more experienced turners who regularly work with small objects. Supplied complete with a set of standard dovetail jaws and a handy woodscrew, this compact chuck offers unrivalled value for money.
The RP2000 is extremely compact, being only 62 mm in diameter, facilitating easy access to workpieces, allowing fine and delicate work to be carried out more easily than with a larger chuck, which can sometimes make access to small projects difficult. However, the size of this chuck does not hinder its versatility as it is capable of holding larger work and can be used to turn bowls up to 12 inches in diameter, making it a great all-rounder. Due to its size and weight it is ideal for use on smaller lathes as it places minimal stress on the bearings.
Also available are four optional sets of jaws, to really make the most of this chuck. The RP2000A Pin Jaw Set, RP2000B Step Jaw Set, RP2000C Wide Grip Jaw Set, and RP2000D Remounting Jaw Set. See Record Power's website for full details.
The RP2000 is available in three thread sizes - 3/4" x 16 TPI, 1" x 8 TPI and also available is an adaptor to change the 3/4" x 16 TPI version to an M33 thread. Starting from just £69.99 for the direct thread versions (the chuck and M33 adaptor package will cost £79.99), this chuck is unbeatable value for money, particularly when taking into account that Record Power's standard 5 year guarantee applies.
