TAKING OFF A CHUCK AND COLLET


 

Many experienced machinists still need to practice this! Many people ask “How to take off a Chuck”. In this article we will show you how to: take off a chuck, put on a chuck, take off a collet chuck and more! Just remember the most important steps

  • Clean and stone everything!
  • Tight bolts like a tire (Opposite sides each time you tighten, not side by side)
  • Use oil/anti seize on threads
  • Turn down the chuck pressure to almost nothing!
  • Indicate collet chucks in before tightening bolts
  • CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN, many people destroy chucks over time because of loose chips that embed into the chuck from clamping on the chips. Cleanliness is next to godliness!

 

TAKING OFF A CHUCK

STEP 4- While opening/closing the chuck (with the pressure down) screw on chuck using wrench.

 

STEP 5- Install dust cover

 

TAKING OFF A COLLET

STEP 3- Take off adapter and clean everything!

 

PUTTING ON A COLLET

 

STEP 1- Clean and stone everything

 

STEP 2- Pressure low

 

STEP 3- While the chuck is in the open position –> screw on adapter

 

STEP 4- Indicate adapter in closed position. Oil the O-rings.

 

STEP 5- Slide collet chuck on (Mark where the dowel hole is)

 

STEP 6- Bolt on like a tire. Lightly tight 3 bolts (in the shape of a triangle) indicate inside of collet chuck.

 

STEP 7-Tighten bolts like a tire

 

TAKING OFF A DEADLINK COLLET

 

STEP 1-  Unbolt (Low Pressure) in closed position.

 

STEP 2- Unscrew entire Chuck in open position.

 

PUTTING ON A DEADLINK COLLET

 

STEP 1- While in low pressure in open position screw on chuck

 

STEP 2- line up Dowel and close collet

 

Step 3- Bolt on like a tire. Lightly tight 3 bolts (in the shape of a triangle) indicate inside of collet chuck.
