  • In this video I will walk you through the process of refurbishing three chucks to fit my LeBlond metal lathe - a 3-Jaw, 4-Jaw and 6-Jaw chuck. Grease, grime, and rust is all removed as these chucks are taken apart, cleaned, and put back together to get them ready for use.

    I have a bag of glass marbles i got at a garage sale i use to take up space when soaking things, to reduce product usage. Kinda like a brick in the toilet tank to reduce water. Glass marbles are ideal because they are non reactive to almost any chemical you can throw at them, non conductive and fill up small spaces. They also work in an electrolysis tank. Bonus tip, marbles/ball bearings inside any container you need to shake before use like paint, or lapping compound or whatever, really speeds up the mixing.

    These Chucks are metric, because they come from southern germany. That brand is Röhm, a manufacter especially for chucks, drill cucks and vises. Greetings from Germany, Nils

    My JAW dropped when you taped on that scroll with that allen wrench. Don't you have a brass punch? Gun Bluing makes a nice protective finish. Never seize those bolts, allows you to tighten the bolts properly, and makes it easier to take apart.

    "Jack Screws" (is what they're called) for separating the 3 jaw chuck

    I've always wondered how those worked mechanically. So simple!

    I love how you rethought everything when it got tight instead of breaking something.

    Use something softer than steel (you allen wrench) to punch parts apart. It's bad practice and you get small dents if the punched part happens to be cast iron ;-)

    Good vids and nice cleanup, evaporust rules but, I have the same reaction as a few others when it comes to knocking the scroll out with the alan..... Brass brass and brass !!!! There are some that use grease some use oil..... Grease is never a good deal on a chuck :)

    Your 6-jaw is about 5 years older than me, but seems less worn out. Sometimes I wish I was made of steel.

    Sheer expertise and mastery of your trade! Brilliant idea using a hardened Allen key to punch on the precision scroll!

    Great video as always Mr. Rucker. I'm a CNC machinist looking to go backwards. You, Mr. Booth, Mr. Fenner, and that goof Mr. Lipton have taught me so much in the manual machining world. The shop that I work in, has more antique yet still operable machinery than I've ever seen. I see machines at work...sitting in dark corners of the shop...collecting dust, that I know I could run because of you guys. I can't thank ya'll enough.

    Hey Keith, nice video like always! You should be happy with the two "Röhm" chucks... they are one manufacturer of premium chucks of all kinds in Germany and are around since 1909. I guess they know what they are doing and I'm interested what your setup and test will tell you (runout etc.). Have fun with your new toys. ;)

    The WD in WD-40 actually means water displacement. It was developed for use in rocket fuel tanks.
