Building on the proven success of our ever popular K10 Clubman chuck, we decided to improve the design by producing a stainless steel version. Using this material allows closer tolerances during the manufacturing process as the chuck body no longer needs electro-plating which can vary in thickness. The threaded body is now a one piece unit, improving concentricity and minimising vibration during use. These chucks are made by us in Axminster using the latest CNC production techniques. All Axminster chucks are part of an excellent woodturning chuck system, just add a set of jaws or accessories from our extensive range to suit your needs. Featuring our SafetyJaw accessory mounting jaws which have rounded corners, it is supplied with a chuck key and available in a range of thread options. N.B. Thread options M33 x 3.5mm (ref T38) and 1.1/4" x 8tpi (T23) have an extended body with provision for reverse locking.

Good quality but....I bought this chuck with a few jaws and have found that it's beautifully made and almost as good as I'd hoped.

Good valueI am a complete novice to wood turning, after research I purchased the Axminster AVSL1000 lathe and decided upon this chuck with a selection of three jaws. All nicely presented in boxes and very, very good quality for the prices paid. Engineering at it's best, believe me, there are lot's worse out there. As I progress in my new hobby I will probably be needing a larger chuck at some stage and I know where I will be getting it from!

Outstanding quality.I have been woodturning for about 18 months now I started with a second hand lathe and a budget chuck and has served me very well. A couple of months ago I treated myself to a new Axminster lathe and my budget chuck just was not running true on the new lathe as my work has improved I decided it was time to upgrade my chuck as well. I have been researching since I got my new lathe and narrowed it down to Axminster Clubman SK100 and the Record power Supernova2, I went to my local Turning supplies outlet and had a look at the Supernova2 and didn’t look too different to my budget chuck that didn’t impress me so my mind was made up. Today my Axminster Clubman SK100 chuck arrived along with the two sets of jaws Type C 100mm Dovetail Jaws and Type M Mega Jaws that I only ordered yesterday, Wow I am very impressed with the outstanding quality of both the chuck and the jaws after fitting the jaws I fitted the chuck to my lathe and it runs absolutely perfectly true. I highly recommend this chuck you will not be disappointed.

Superb British EngineeringBeing new to woodturning I researched chucks quite extensively. For quality, at the price I wanted to pay, the Clubman was my first choice. Reading the information on the SK100, I could understand how by engineering this chuck from a solid block of stainless steel the slightly hit or miss accuracy created by the traditional plating process would no longer be an issue. The chuck arrived today and I am more than impressed with the quality of the engineering. There is just enough play to enable a very smooth operation and the A type jaws, purchased seperately, fitted with precision. I was concerned about the drill type key system. However, it is an excellent fit so I wouldn't expect it to slip or wear excessively. Due to travel committments, I won't be able to try it on the lathe until mid September, but I certainly don't envisage any problems. And if I do, I know I can rely on Axminster to look after me.
