LONGWORTH CHUCKS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR FEDEX SHIPPING.
Woodline USA Longworth style chucks are manufactured in the USA and feature strong grabbing non-marring jaws and a smooth adjustment mechanism. As the front and back discs are rotated, the jaws move in and out automatically centering your project on the chuck. CNC cut phenolic material and precision hardware ensure years of performance.
Woodline USA’s Longworth chucks are designed to be used with a standard self-centering lathe chuck (not included). It can be quickly removed from the lathe without removing the existing chuck or having to change hardware. Projects can be grabbed from the inside or the outside.
10"-16" Chucks supplied with 2-1/4" chuck adapter for use with #2 jaws.
20" and 24" Chucks supplied with 4-1/4" chuck adapter for use with #3 jaws
Longworth style chucks are designed for light cutting at low speed. They should not be rotated at high speed. Chuck size refers to the diameter of the phenolic disk. Longworth style chucks come with written and DVD instructions.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
what are the riser rings for?
These allow you to do natural/live edges on turnings. It keeps the edges from sliding under the buttons of the Longworth chuck.
Do I need a chuck to mount the longworth?
Yes. You will need a four jaw chuck.
Will the Longworth system work with a Nova G3 chuck dovetailed jaws?
16" and under will work.
I have a 20" Longworth System that has been working great for 5 -7 years. Recently, the black and red plates no longer glide smoothly. What can I use to lubricate? If I need to take them apart, is the screw in the center right tight and left loose or is it reverse threads?
You can take it apart and clean it as needed. The threads are standard right hand and mineral oil is best for cleaning but just wiping it out will probably take care of your problem without any cleaning products.
Hi, What size 4-jaw chuck do I need on my lathe to mount the Longworth please?
Up to 16", the gripping disc is 2-1/4". For the 20" and above, the disc is 4-1/4".
