A very versatile 114mm jaw set designed for the Evolution chucks but also suitable for use with the SK100.The Piranha jaws expand into a 82mm dovetailed recess and have a series of teeth for an internal grip onto a 62mm spigot diameter. These given dimensions are when the jaws form a true circle and offer the best grip. Recommended range: 62-80mm internal, 85-102mm external. An excellent choice for hollow forms or turning unseasoned timber, these jaws also allow good access to the rear of your projects while still mounted on the lathe.
N.B. The finish may be either silver or black due to changes in legislation regarding passive zinc plating.

Excellent QualityIf your goal is to guarantee large pieces of work won't be flying over your shoulder when the blank is some distance from the headstock then this beauty is just the ticket. These jaws are accurately engineered, incredibly robust and chunky and with a very versatile set of holding methods. You can turn a massive spigot to guarantee the holding power or a more delicate dovetail, I really like this versatility. I also really like the fact they're 100% made in good 'ol Blighty by home grown engineers, proving we can still make world leading product. Of course they're more expensive than the Chaiwanse stuff but when you want your face to remain how God intended it, I put my trust in this every time. Great for large hollow vessels etc
