Ring Turning Chuck

The Ring Turning Chuck provides precision and convenience when turning ring cores helping you to achieve a perfect high quality finish on your rings. The chuck can also be used with other projects such as bottle stoppers.

Lathe Ring Making Tools

We will be stocking 3 types of Ring Turning Chuck, depends on your lathe spindle size - This chuck is suitable for lathes with a 1/8"-8 tpi spindle thread


When you look at the tool in detail, you'll see that it's precision machined from solid steel and threaded to fit directly onto your lathes spindle, the single piece design with 60 degree dimple on the end of the shaft for tailstock support guarantees perfect concentricity every time.

Benefits of a chuck over expanding mandrels

  • The artisan ring turning chuck, being attached directly to the spindle of the lathe, prevents concentricity issues that might occur when expanding ring mandrels are inserted into a chuck (prevents "wobble").
  • Only one chuck is required rather than at least two expanding ring mandrels giving great value for money.
  • No moving parts, providing the chuck with a longer lifespan than mandrels or step chucks.
