Default 3/4" 10tpi Nut soldered on a jacobs chuck

"Desperate" Jacobs chuck on an ELU DB180 HEADSTOCK.

In Australia, I could not get an m18x2.5 nut so I used a 3/4" 10tpi nut as a desperate measure.

Works fine.

To make this drill chuck, you need to first align your lathe. Headstock to tail stock FIRST.

Screw the NUT to the Headstock and Hold the chuck centre with the tail stock with the pin extended for the chuck to grip.
Then just braze or solder the nut to the chuck using SILVER SOLDER.

Default Adapter for Tail stock

Made this adapter so that "desperate" Jacobs Chuck can fit on tail stock too.
3/4" 10tpi long screw with a thin nut mounted on a hard wood with araldite. Cut off the bolt head.
Used the wood lathe to cut the wood to exactly fit the tail stock cylinder.

I think I held the screw in a cheap 4-Jaw chuck to machine the hard wood part of this adapter on the ELU wood lathe itself.


I had used 3/4" 10tpi bolts and nut. Please use m18x2.5 bolt and nut if you are in a more metricated country than my country Australia.

"desperate" Jacobs Drill Chuck now mounted with adapter on ELU DB180's tail stock

I had used 3/4" 10tpi bolts and nut. Please use m18x2.5 bolt and nut if you are in a more metricated country than my country Australia.

Default ELU Lathe's tailstock live CUP-CENTRE is versatile

The ELU DB180 has a versatile live cup center. This type of cup center has a central point like a normal live center and also has a ring surrounding it. The ring supports the softer material around the center point and prevents the wood from splitting under pressure from the central point.

The center point pin is removable and the pin shank has a 10mm diameter.
This means that we can remove the center pin and insert a long 10mm AUGER DRILL through the center of the tailstock tube to drill a long center hole of 10mm diameter eg for electric wires to pass through a turned lamp stand.

A long 10mm AUGER DRILL has a 6mm hex end and so the drill can be extended using long drill extender one after another.

The ELU DB180 is too often underrated.

Wow, this thread is going well back in history. Many things have changed including the fact that it is almost impossible to get anything other than METRIC in Bunnings these days, gutter bolts MAY still be Imperial. Another big change is my health.

Hi Harry,
Even today, Burnings sells metric nuts and bolts up to M16 ONLY.
They still sell plenty of 3/4" Whitworth nuts and bolts.
And ROUTER shanks in Australia are STLL 1/4" and 1/2" in 2018.

Sorry to hear about your health.
Try drinking "ALKALINE water" like I do.
Within 2 weeks my Blood pressure dropped by 10mm Hg and in 4 weeks my urine pH went up from about 5 to 6.4.

Harry; it's a 'thing'... maybe I should try it(?). Not cheap, compared to what comes out of the tap.
