American made lathe chucks

In a possibly fruitless search for an adjustable, US made chuck, I've
found that a price list is not a common thing. Bison is looking better
and better. I am having suspicions that BTC is making Cushman chucks
(sure share the same model number).
Kalamazoo hasn't got back to me.
5", 3 jaw, micro adjustable, adapter for 1 3/4 by 8 tpi. Brass and Tool
has the Bison Set-Tru and a 1 3/4 x 8 tpi mounting plate....
5" chuck is roughly 11 pounds, a 6" is roughly 23 pounds...

They stop at a 6" chuck. Wish they'd do a 5".
My G9972Z has a 5" 3 jaw with a 1HP motor.

The 5" Set-Tru that Bob Cumings sold me has been fine. The centering screws aren't 90 degrees apart but it's still easy to adjust, though I have need to only a couple of times.

Damned good chucks
Whenever a Liberal utters the term "Common Sense approach"....grab your wallet, your ass, and your guns because the sombitch is about to do something damned nasty to all three of them.
