Regards Good Luck Willy. Thank you in advance. I probably will get one extra jaw set to start with as well as the standard chuck unless the jaws of the standard chuck are really no use. Mind you I only turned steel as part of the course. With the corners stopping the spin, the chuck only needs to be tightened just enough that the blank doesn’t fall out. Hi Andy First of all congratulation on the VL Also, a few of the recommendations were that I should only get the standard jaws first and decide later which jaws to get in addition.

Artme, Tornatus, Willy and Jeff, Thank you again. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. While I do not always achieve that, a quality tool is certainly a vl010 place to start to occassionaly succeed.
If all goes well I will visit Jim Thursday. All work a treat. In my opinion I reckon the vicmarc is the best.
Any tighter is pointless. Which chuck for the Vicmarc VL? After vcimarc get more experience using it you will have a better idear of which extra jaws to buy. Haven’t forgotten you Andy, have bought the jaws back home from my folks now, just gotta find the right boxes now.
Thanks DJ, I appreciate your thoughts and looking forward to the photos. Also, Ssries is the range of movement of the VM chuck.

Hi Tony, Skew, I am under the impression that the standard jaws can grip both in compression and expansion mode. Skip to main content.
Hello Vivmarc Yeah, I call em cole jaws, but they are the big mm Vicmarc bowl holders vcmarc finishing the bums. See other items More No drama really, drill press, sharp 6 mm drill bit and a vice to hold the jaws. I just found it hard to understand from your earlier posts exactly what sreies were trying to achieve, but now that you have explained the nature of the things you want to make, I am impressed by your dedication to restoration. How do you guys do it? As far as MT2 taper modifications are concerned, I simply do not have tools like metal lathe to drill and tap vicmqrc hole into the MT2 and to cut threads onto round stock or to reduce the diameter of a pen mandrel to a size I need.
Also, a few of the recommendations were that I should only get the standard jaws first and decide later which jaws to get in addition. After all, you can turn a faceplate mounted 12″ blank down to a toothpick – if you want to waste all that wood! They seem to have a wider range of jaw options and they are an Aussie company manufacturing in Aussie.

I must admit I am having difficulty understanding just how small the things are you want to work on – the smallest pieces I have worked on would be lace bobbins, and my Long-nose Jaws hold them quite nicely.
VM you can’t go wrong. From memory, they close down to a minimum internal diameter of 6mm. I feel I should not abuse this generosity and use it wisely. Seller does not offer returns. Mate, as I always say to anybody I may be training, there are no dumb questions, only stupid answers! With the corners stopping the spin, the chuck only needs to be tightened just enough that the blank doesn’t fall out. You are only limited by your imagination – I recently saw a demonstration of multi-axis turning where two jaws had been removed, allowing the blank to be moved laterally between the two remaining jaws; and I have also seen work gripped by the jaw vicmrc alone.

Well, I have a few more questions. Watch list is full. I notice you are just across the bay from Jim Carroll’s vl1100 at Drysdale, so I suggest a visit and a chat with Jim would be a good investment. He made me feel comfortable to ask anything and his vicmarx were simple to understand.
I normally have a good copy I need to replicate or a damaged item I need to recreate. Again, they need parts that I need to make.
Which chuck for the Vicmarc VL? [Archive] – Woodwork Forums
Me again, Andy Despite my chuck addiction problem, I agree that you should just buy your first VM with the standard jaws, as they will certainly allow you to do zeries bowl-turning, and can even grip spindle blanks if you first mount the blank between centres and vl1100 a spigot on one end.
An item that has been used previously. I could not understand for my life, how on earth I do not see in the specs for the jaw what you see when you are using your jaws. Don’t lurk on your own trying to learn from your mistakes – you will only discover how to make even bigger mistakes. So I take back the recommendations I made about these jaws, and apologise for any confusion caused by the fact that Vicmarc have stuffed up a perfectly good design!
Hi Andy Vicmarc makes the 35 mm pin jaws that I’m sure cl100 close enough for small jobs 35mm being the outside.
Vicmarc VL benchtop wood lathe. The only issue was drilling out the 5 mm holes in the Vicmarc jaws to 6 mm. I was not disappointed by your comments and saying that others may have been disappointed with my choice of turning were not the best choice of words on my part.
Powermatic Wood Lathe Model Select a valid country. To be honest I did not enjoy it even though I learnt quite a bit.
Hopefully, will soon sort you out! His chisels were vic,arc as big as my lathe. Having said that, I am sure knows what he is doing. Seller information pcou
