We have a limited number of different types of jaws that we have permanently attached to a set of Axminster accessory mounting jaws. We can now offer these at a very reasonable price which represents an economical way to increase the versatility of your lathe. The range of jaw types include C type jaws and D type dovetail jaws. Please note that these jaws are meant to be left permanently attached to the accessory mounting jaws and will not be compatible with standard Axminster accessory mounting jaws.

Cheap jaws but...I bought a couple of sets of these jaws, type A, type D and type H. The small D type ones are fine, but the A and H type do not have the smaller internal faces to grip your work with (ie no 1 inch dovetail in the A jaws). It looks like the jaws have been made with the mounting holes drilled too close to the centre of the spinde, as a result, there is not enough space to allow for a hole in the centre of the jaws. At the price they are offered at, the jaws are still good value but be aware they are not as versatile as the standard parts, as this is not mentioned in the description.
