View Full Version : Comments on a 3-jaw Willis Chuck

02-15-2008, 01:36 PM
When I bought my Clausing 12x36 lathe a couple of months ago, a few extras came w/ the deal. One is an 8" Willis 3 jaw chuck, stamped made in Germany(possibly by some long lost relatives). Can't find much info on this make as I've searched web, checked Plaza's inventory. Appears to be well made although I have yet to use it as I'm still doing a slow restoration on lathe.
Anyone care to chime in ?? Thanks

Willis is a rebrand name used by a Toledo, OH company. It is usually on reasonably decent imported tools & tooling.
