    Looks like these taylor chucks are like buses!

    Back to the restoration, I use chainsaw chain oil on my chucks. The anti-fling additive helps stop it flying off the chuck when you start the lathe. I apply it with a brush & on the outside I remove the excess with a cloth.

    The way oil is nice but as you say tends to ring off. I will have a look at the chainsaw chain oil.

    It's certainly very 'clingy' :thumbup:

    What is the idea behind the concave face?

    It is in effect conical. The scroll is cone shaped and the jaws are drawn into the chuck, as they tighten, providing a much higher gripping force than with a conventional flat scroll.

    Carrying on from the 8.5 three jaw I am now doing the four jaw. In great condition. It's been degreased and cleaned. Tomorrow I hopefully should have it built. 20181104_142757.jpg 20181104_144111.jpg 20181104_144138.jpg 20181106_153838.jpg 20181106_153853.jpg 20181106_153845.jpg

    Today I finished off the four jaw Taylor chuck. Very nice and smooth running now. Also an added bonus was the original Taylor chuck key. Both 3 and 4 jaws are now complete and packed away upstairs. 20181110_141400.jpg 20181110_141857.jpg 20181110_155116.jpg 20181110_155248.jpg

    They look nice Spencer.

    I wouldn't be able to help myself - I would HAVE to pull the jaws and re-face the flats and re-punch the numbers :D

    It did cross my mind on the three jaw. May well do when it's up and running.

    Maybe you could find one that hasn't met the toolpost head on? :dontknow:

    If you're really lucky it might even have minty jaws and the correct backplate... :whistle:
