Manufacturing's Family of Chucks
There are three chucks in the ONEWAY Chuck Family:
- Our original chuck - The ONEWAY Chuck
- Our largest chuck - The STRONGHOLD Chuck
- Our latest addition to the family - The TALON Chuck
The STRONGHOLD & TALON chucks
are a key operated 4 jaw self-centering scroll chuck, and the original ONEWAY
chuck, is a lever operated 4 jaw self centering scroll chuck.
Many accessories, such as optional jaw sets,
woodworm screws and chuck spurs are available for all chucks,
which allows the product to suit your specific needs. If your needs change or grow, these
chucks can be adapted to change and grow as you do.
When choosing between the STRONGHOLD, ONEWAY,
or TALON chucks, the following should be considered:
- Clamping ease and power desired
- Size of stock to be clamped (The Stronghold's capacities are slightly larger)
- Spindle size (The ONEWAY and TALON will not fit spindles larger than 1-1/4"
ONEWAY chucks have been designed by a machinist with engineering input from material,
heat treating, and plating specialists in order to satisfy the wood turner's every need.
Chucks were designed to meet most turning needs. Less time spent getting ready to turn and
more time spent turning means better quality, and more finished projects. Large projects
can be turned more safely, and turning can be done at the ends of long stock.
Note: When ordering, please be sure to specify the adaptor thread
required for your spindle.

1. Self Centering
All chucks are 4- jaw self centering scroll chucks. The wide range of a scroll chuck
allows both expansion and compression chucking to fit a recess or tenon without the bother
of taking exact measurements. Four jaws will hold both round and square stock.
2. Precision Machining & Quality Materials
Base jaws are made from carbon steel. Precision grinding on the sides provides for the
exact and controlled clearances which are required for wood turning chucks. These base
jaws are case hardened to make them longer lasting, stronger, and non-seizing in use.
The scroll is precision machined and case hardened with the bore honed to exact
tolerance after heat treating. This insures that no action adjustment is required for the
life of the chuck. Manganese phosphate plating acts as an anti-seize compound. Less
lubrication is consequently required for smooth-running action over the life of the chuck.
The body is precision machined from a solid block of steel. Electroless nickel plating
provides a hard wearing surface for base jaws and scroll while giving the added bonus of
providing excellent corrosion resistance.
3. Satisfaction Guarantee
As with all of ONEWAY's products, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If, for any
reason, you are not satisfied with this product, simply return it within 90 days (with
proof of purchase) and we'll refund your money (shipping not included). Our manufacturer's
warranty further covers any manufacturing defects for up to two years.
4. Patented Safety Feature
Our Chucks were designed with safety in mind. A patented over-extension preventer slot
and pin system makes chucks safe to use for all levels of turners. This system eliminates
the accidental over-extension of jaws which could result in a jaw flying out at lathe
start-up and injuring the operator. There are two settings: the first allows for maximum
jaw travel, the second keeps jaws from extending outside the chuck body, providing safe
5. Unique Easy Entry Woodworm Screw
A 1½" Woodworm Screw is
supplied with the chuck. This screw is machined with both a locating groove and four slots
along the length of the head so it can be held and locked in place. This heavy duty screw
is equipped with deeply cut threads which are tapered at the point for easy entry and
minimal tearout. ONEWAY's woodworm screws are unsurpassed for all types of screw chucking
operations. ONEWAY also offers these in 2" dia.

- 2" RH Jumbo Screw Part No. 2042
- 2" LH Jumbo Screw Part No. 2040
6. Taper Lock Adaptor
A taper-lock mounting adaptor is supplied with every chuck. It is secured with screws
and is fully machined in one set up. With this unique taper-lock design the chuck is
guaranteed to run true to the lathe spindle. The possibility of the adaptor loosening or
separating from the chuck body in normal use or when reversing the lathe has been
Adaptors can be or are supplied standard with RH and LH cross thread. If you have a
lathe with different size inboard and outboard threads it may be possible for a sleeve to
be permanently mounted on your outboard. Then switching your chuck from inboard to
outboard will only take seconds.
Adaptors can be made to fit almost any spindle size. If you ever purchase a new lathe,
or want to use your chuck on a different lathe, it is as simple as purchasing a new
Profile Top Jaws
ONEWAY chucks are outfitted with our revolutionary top jaw design. This design
guarantees that superior gripping at all diameters within the chuck capacity is better
than any competitive system. The aggressive teeth make holding side or end grain more
secure than ever, yet fiber damage is minimized as pressure is spread over a larger area.
