    They are capable of far greater clamling forces and stay accurate longer.

    I would love to find the four jaw Taylor but these are impossible to find. But I shall not give up.

    Probably the least practicable type of chuck as far as I'm concerned. It has neither the versatility of the independent 4-jaw nor the tolerance for handling out-of-round stock of the self-centering 3-jaw.

    I agree .It's strange that the four jaw is self centering and not independent

    Yes, very handy for that. Not saying I wouldn't have one but I wouldn't go and buy one. If I had to run a lot of square stock I'd turn up a split collet with a step to stop it pulling through the jaws when the bar is fed.

    I've got one of those kicking about in the shed. Are they collectible/valuable then?

    Nice restoration, is it worth my while to do the same do you think?

    They are not worth big money. They are just getting harder to get. Just another part of old British engineering

    I load my lathes with a crane so no work will fit in a collet!
    On a serious note I have a load of ward capstan collets with a number being hex and square. Maybe I ll have the machine to go with them one day
