Default Looking for "reuel"

Hi
Recently purchased a wood lathe that I don't want to use to turn wood. Instead, I want to mount poo cue shafts for cleaning. My problem is identical to a posting I found in my resarch from reuelt in 2003.

((The spindle is M18mmx2.5 RH but there is no morse taper on the headstock nor the tailstock.

This means that you can get the Technatool "Supernova" chuck or the Bonham "Bon 100" Scroll Chuck as both these chucks can be purchased with M18 x 2.5 RH inserts (adapters).

The Supernova or the Bon 100 have many attractive optional Jaws.

Also as 18mm x 2.5mm RH is only nearly the same size as 3/4"x10tpi (actually only slightly smaller), you can actually use accessories built with 3/4"x10tpi RH threads if desperate.

I once made my own Jacob drill chuck by silver soldering & brazing a 3/4"x10tpi nut to a drill chuck with a female Morse No. 3 taper. It still works. I have also cut an adaptor using turned wood, 3/4" bolt and a 3/4 half nut and epoxy so that the same drill chuck can fit into the ELU DB180's tail stock. I once bought an indendent 4-jaw chuck from Bunnings for $65 - it works if I just put in a suitable plastic washer as spacer first.

My ELU DB180 a good lathe with 48" between centers 15" spin and 1.5HP motor - good vintage? German Technology.

Welcome to the forum Tom, I was surprised to see that you are in the USA, after mentioning BUNNINGS which is an Australian company. You appear to have solved the problem yourself by mentioning the Super Nova chuck, this is a great chuck in spite of it being made in New Zealand (ducking for cover), I have one as have many other members.

Welcome Tom. I did a little looking myself and it seems you may have the only options available with the super nova and the Bon 100 chuck. I am not familiar with a lot of equipment from overseas. Since you are only going to use it to do one thing you will probably be alright. If you were going to turn wood you would have to be resourceful and make a lot of thing for that lathe.

I think it is what you use to let you dog know when to go...

Could also be stage direction from a teenage-grossout movie script.

Good luck with the lathe! Always fun to get a bargin and then spend quality time rebuilding or retasking the equipment. You get to learn EXACTLY what it is capible of doing!

Sorry I was unaware of this thread until now. Nobody PM me..

I recommend:-
http://www.garypye.com/Chucks/GPW-Ge...Set-p250.htmlI with "18mm 2.5 mm pitch insert".
I bought their Gen 1 version and found it very useful.
No more complains about the ELU DB180 once you have a 4 jaws self centering scroll chuck on which you can attach so many things including your Jacobs drill chuck and face rings, screw chuck etc etc.
