Barracuda 6-Jaw Lathe Chuck

Penn State Industries has just released a new scroll chuck which has six jaws. I believe they are the first vendor to introduce a six-jaw chuck.

They have created this chuck to reduce the spacing problem that you have with four-jaw chucks when you spread the jaws wide to accommodate a large diameter turning base. Typically you get a small gap between the jaw and the wood in the center of jaw such that only the edges of each jaw touch the wood. With a six-jaw chuck, you get more surface area grabbing the wood.

The chuck is compatible with 1 1/4" x 8 TPI and has an adapter to fit 1" x 8 TPI lathes. It can grip outside tenons of 2 1/2" to 3 1/4" and expand into inside mortises 2" to 2 3/4".

The list price for the six-jaw Barracuda chuck is $99.95.

New from Shaper Tools


Origin

The Origin by Shaper Tools is the first handheld CNC machine. Yes, handheld... this compact, powerful tool is the next evolution in CNC machines. It looks like a router but has a high speed cutter that sits in a computer-controlled mounting. You create a digital shape which gets loaded into the tool. You see the cutter path in an LED screen on the top of the tool. You move the tool around by hand and it automatically corrects when you deviate from the designated cutting path. If you go too far off the path, then the cutter retracts until it's ready to start again.

To get an idea of how innovative this is, we recommend that you watch this short, introductory video: click here.

You can pre-order for only a short time more for $2199. The retail price is projected to be $2399.

New from Hunter Tool Systems


Viceroy Tools

Mike Hunter has released two new tools using his #1 nano-grain carbide cup-cutters. The new tools, named the Viceroy, come with either a 3/8" or 1/2" square shank.

The Viceroy makes woodturning a breeze.  The # 1 Hunter Cutter is positioned on the left side of the tool.  The front tilt geometry makes it virtually impossible to get a catch.  The cutter is set at 20 degree front tilt.  This position of the cutter makes this tool user friendly for both rough and finish cuts.

These tools can be used for rough and finish cuts on the outside and inside of bowls. They can be used for straight cuts in boxes and vases.

The Viceroy tools are available now with or without tool handles.

The price for either the 3/8" or 1/2" square shank tool without a tool handle is $125.00 and with a tool handle the price goes up to $145.

New from Tim Yoder


Elbo Lathe Extension for Short Bed and Mini Lathes

Finding a hollowing system for a short bed or mini lathe is very difficult. But now, Tim Yoder brings to market a mini-lathe extension enabling you to use the famous Elbo Tool on your mini-lathe. It also works for full size short bed lathes with swings up to 26 inches.

The Lathe Extension bolts to the bed of your lathe and provides an adjustable barrel mounted on a vertical shaft. The Elbo Tool bolts to this barrel allowing you to adjust for level on your lathe.

All the parts on this extension system are heavy-duty machined parts which are zinc-plated to resist rust. The Lathe Extension should fit most lathes with a conventional bed and gives a turner up to 10" more bed length for hollowing.

The price on the lathe extension is $99.00
