This 4-Jaw, self-centering chuck with dovetailed jaws is great for small bowl and plate turning and features jaws that grip by clamping around the workpiece or expanding to fit a turned recess. The minimum diameter required for clamping around the workpiece is 1.25" and the minimum diameter required for expansion is 1 13/16". Includes T-handled wrenches, wood screw center and machined chuck lever. Compact design is ideal for smaller lathes.

WOOD magazine review

No frills, just solid and steady

Review Summary

We like the Grizzly's crisp-tipped jaws for gripping short tenons and shallow recesses. But its long center screw can be bothersome when working with stock less than 2" thick. Nearly identical to the Vicmarc VM100, the H6265 accepts Vicmarc accessories.
