WARNING: Machine tools present a safety hazard. Improper operation can result in severe injury. These topics are for non-laboratory study only and are not to be used in conjunction with the operation of any tool or machine described herein. Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.
The chuck is usually connected to the lathe by one of three methods: a camlock (figure 1) , a taper (figure 2), or a thread (figure3). The back side of the chuck will reveal that it connects to the lathe via one of these methods. It is important to protect both taper and threads from impact, as any dings or chips in this area of the chuck will cause misalignment.
