    revisited lantern chuck

    Hi this is my version of lantern chuck.
    it's cheap, easy to make and versatile. It will hold a nail up to a 3/8 bolt.
    you could to 3/4 head if you want. the main body are water coupler. one end was machine
    so I could press fit a 3/8 nut coupler.I did put a socket head bolt at the end so I can use it in a lathe.
    the delrin parthas a magnet in it. It's precise enough you can put it in a lathe to machine a screw,bolt

    Thanks for sharing.

    I like the use of some already existing parts for this chuck.

    What is the socket head screw in the end of the 3/8 rod for...I don't understand from the description.

    Hi, the reason why I did use water coupler at the beginning was because of the Almost infinite use.
    The socket head screw allows me to secure the bolt, nail, whatever... a tite as I can without having
    any problem. Those water couplers give me 3/4 inch deep. So using it for a 4/48 screw I would turn the socket
    screw in more then using a 3/8 bolts. Now the reason for a 6/32 socket head. It is smaller then the outer diameter
    then a 3/8 rod , I can take the complete lantern and put it into a c5 chuck without having any interference issue

    Ah yes. That socket screw from the back makes sense. Thanks for sharing your design!

    Hi,
    This is strangely very similar as my build :
    http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/s...637#post111080

    Coincidence is very possible, I do not deny, but if possibly you already saw this build before, it would be nice to credit the source.
    Well done, in any case !
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Hi, I agree there are some similitude, but no I didn't see your post before.
    in my case nothing is screwed in , it's all drill and ream.
    great mind thinks alike
