Robert Sorby COMPATRIOT Chuck Body (requires insert)
The COMPatriot is for those who already have a Patriot (or Nova) chuck and want another chuck (or chucks!) but with a different jaw set.
The COMPatriot is supplied as Chuck Body with Jaw screws, chuck key and instruction leaflet ONLY. This version accepts a standard insert or exert.
The Robert Sorby PATRIOT wood turning chuck has been designed after listening to what woodturners wanted from a chuck. It happens that all jaws, accessories and inserts will exactly fit all Nova and Supernova chucks, but there are new features to the jaw and accessory range that all woodturners will enjoy using.
It has a smooth 1" (25mm) of movement in expansion and contraction. All jaws have an internal and external dovetail and extra gripper teeth which come into use with deeper spigots.
The unique silicon rubber band is designed to protect against accidental injury from contact with the outer edge of the revolving chuck. The jaws are so accurately made that they are not numbered - they just fit to any jaw slide when you change or remount jaws. An aluminium cover is hex screwed to the back to reduce ingress of dust and is easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. But best of all, at last we have a set of jaws between the standard 50mm jaws and the 25mm jaws.
The NEW RSJ15 35mm jaws were designed by Dave Bates for boxes and smaller pieces up
to 9" diameter without using an oversize foot.
These jaws should have been designed years ago but at least we have them now and they are already a popular addition to the jaw range for all Patriot owners and those with Supernova and other Nova chucks.
The image shows a COMpatriot chuck fitted with the standard 50mm Jaws which are not included.
