Brand New Range of Record Power Woodturning Chucks and Jaws

31st July 2015


Record Power SC3 and SC4 Woodturning Chucks

We are extremely proud to introduce the brand new range of Record Power woodturning chucks and jaws. This exclusive new range has been developed using Record Power's extensive experience and knowledge of woodturning in conjunction with a group of highly experienced professional and hobby woodturners, to bring you the ultimate in quality, versatility and value. Incorporating the best elements of our previous ranges, we have also listened closely to our valued customers over the years and have taken note of their feedback, suggestions and requests to guide our design approach.

By looking closely at our previous ranges as well as others currently on the market, we have designed a new generation of chuck bodies and jaws to offer woodturners unrivalled performance and ease of use.

The SC3 Geared Scroll Chuck and SC4 Professional Geared Scroll Chuck are direct replacements to our previous G3 and Supernova2 models, with some notable improvements.

Integral to the performance of a chuck are its jaw slides. On both new chucks these have been made noticeably larger than others on the market, increasing their torque and load bearing abilities. Manufactured using the powder metallurgy process, they are made from high tensile steel, impregnated with nickel-copper to ensure superior strength and longevity.

The range is manufactured using precision CNC equipment to our exacting standards. The jaw slides are controlled using a precision engineered geared scroll which moves in the conventional screw direction - clockwise to close the jaws and anti-clockwise to open them. Many other chucks work in the opposite direction and are therefore not as intuitive to use as the SC3 and SC4. The Super Geared True-Lock ™ technology used to manufacture the gears ensures excellent strength and unsurpassed surface and dimensional accuracies to give smooth, vibration free operation.

The SC3 Geared Scroll Chuck is available in 3 of the most popular thread sizes: 3/4" x 16 TPI, 1" x 8 TPI and M33 x 3.5.

The SC4 Professional Geared Scroll Chuck is available as an insert version, with a full range of inserts to fit, meaning it can be used on virtually any kind of lathe. Unlike our previous professional chuck, the SC4 is now available with an M33 x 3.5 insert. The chuck body has been designed specifically to hold this large thread size insert, therefore offering even more flexibility to customers who may want to upgrade to or from an M33 lathe.


Record Power Woodturning Chuck Jaw Range


Record Power Woodturning Chuck Jaw Range
As part of the design process, we looked in depth at the ranges of jaws available to today's woodturners. Our aim was to create a new range which allowed for all the flexibility currently on offer whilst also engineering out superfluous features and, where possible, condensing the attributes of some jaw designs to increase their usefulness. The result is a comprehensive range of 14 intelligently designed sets of chuck jaws, many of which are brand new designs exclusive to Record Power. 

This range offers woodturners a definitive collection of jaws to cover virtually any woodturning task and represents unbeatable value for money. In addition, all jaws are fully compatible with our previous Nova series chucks.
