Originally Designed as a Coffee Scoop Chucky to make it easier to hollow out the cup portion of the scoop; through testing we found many more uses like hollowing and decorating Spheres and other items like small boxes etc.
Before ordering check the size of the thread screws that hold your jaws to your Scroll Chuck.
These will be Metric Threads.
Most common is M6-1 but some are M5-0.8.
The length we supply with the Scoop Chucky is 60 mm.
This set consists of four Chuckies.
The appropriate Screws and Lock Washers.
The SOS Chucky will fit any Scroll Chuck except the EZ Wood Quick Change type chuck.
The following section of information will be redone with pictures - I just wanted to keep the link live so that you could get an ides of how the SOS Chucky works.
Should be ready for prime Tim e in a day or so!
To install, simply remove the jaws from your Scroll Chuck. (Sorry, but it won't work on an Easy Wood quick change type chuck.)
Double check that you have the correct size thread Pan Head Machine Screw to fit your chuck threads. When installing them; put the lock washer in the top hole of the chucky.
Most Scroll Chucks have two threaded holes to attach the jaws ~ this chucky only requires the use of one of these holes. We suggest starting with the outboard hole for all four chuckies.
This allows for the largest workpiece to fit between the chuckies.
Loosely tighten each Chucky at first – adjust your scroll chuck to its largest and smallest size to see how the chuckies are lining up and check if your workpiece will fit - then go back and securely tighten them.
We offer this Chucky with your choice of the the following Screw sizes.
5mm x .08 x60mm
6mm x 1 x 60mm (Most Common)
The SOS Chucky can be used with either size screw.
It is your responsibility to use the proper screw to fit your chuck threads!!
If you find that a chuck takes a different size screw; they are available at most hardware stores.
When installing you can put either the larger or smaller diameter of the chucky on the bottom. Whatever works to accommodate your workpiece. You can install them in any configuration to suit your needs.
If you are using the SOS Chucky for “offset” turning then stagger one or more of the chuckies in the inboard or outboard hole. You may also need to stagger the larger or smaller diameter.
In other words, for “offset” turning install in whatever configuration works. Ensure the chuckies are securely tightened to the chuck ~ check this often!
The SOS Chuckies can also be used with Cole Jaws in whatever configuration suits your needs.
If you have a handle on your workpiece take care to ensure it doesn't hit your banjo or worse yet you! Always check to ensure that the SOS Chucky and workpiece are securely held to your Scroll Chuck.
Check back in a day or so when we anticipate completion of this page.
Our formal announcement is expected by 2/1/20 or hopefully sooner!
