SCREW CHUCKS

  1. TODAY I WILL BE MAKING SCREW CHUCKS  AS SEEN IN PHOTO BUT WILL NOT TAP CENTRE FOR LATHES?AS EACH LATHE HAS ITS OWN THREAD. AS THESE I WILL SELL TO WHO EVER WANTS ONE AND WHAT LATHE THEY HAVE AS THESE WILL BE TAPPED TO THE LATHE THEY OWN. 3/4 16 TPI /  20MM X 2 MM  ECT .AS EACH LATHE HAS ITS OWN THREAD WILL BE MAKING THESE TO ORDER. AS I HAVE THE LATHE TO MAKE THESE AND ALL LATHE TOOLS FOR METAL,I THOUGHT WHY NOT. AS DRAPER TOOLS SELLS THESE FOR £36.99 / $62 . EACH. SO WILL BE MAKING MINE AND SEE WHAT I CAN SELL THESE FOR. TAKES 5 MINUTES TO MAKE ONE ON LATHE .THEN MOST PROBABLY ANOTHER 5 MINUTES TO BORE AND TAP ONE END SAY 3/4 X 16 TPI. AND OTHER END 8 MM FOR THE SCREW TO BE FITTED.SO YOUR TALKING 10 MINS MAX TO MAKE ONE.THIS WILL BE MADE FROM 2 1/4 DIAMETER STEEL BAR. AS I SAID WHY PAY HIGH PRICES FROM A COMPANY?AS YOU ARE PAYING FOR THE COMPANYS NAME ON THAT PRODUCT.BUT THE COMPANY WHO SELLS THESE HAVE BOUGHT THESE FROM ANOTHER COMPANY WHO ARE MASS PRODUCING THESE ON A CNC LATHE AND PRODUCING MAYBE 60/70 MAYBE MORE AN HOUR. AS YOU KNOW A CNC WILL PRODUCE THIS IN ONE HIT .IT WILL TURN DIMENSIONS THEN BORE AND TAP BOTH 8 MM AND 3/4  TPI THREAD IN ONE HIT..I WILL DO MINE MY WAY.. AS I DO NOT HAVE CNC ! BUT IF I DO IT MY WAY THESE CAN BE ORDERED TO FIT YOUR LATHE NO MATTER WHAT THREAD. A BIT OF WEEKEND POCKET MONEY. .
