Arceurotrade Lathe Chucks
« on: November 14, 2019, 08:10:01 PM »


Arceurotrade are selling "lathe chucks of Chinese origin" at much reduced prices. Does anyone have actual knowledge of their quality?

All the Mini Lathe chucks are Chinese , ARC Eurotrade / Chester Engineering etc , you should get a new backplate with it that will need to be machined to a tight fit (important) in the location counter bore on the back of the new chuck (dont alter your existing chucks backplate) the Quill (the squirally bit you can see thru the jaw slots) is a bit too coarse so tightening up is not as good as it should be AND they'll go out of true running eventually  . . . but they are what they are , there's different bore sizes also so check the bore size of any chuck you buy depending on which model of mini lathe you have .
