Topic tags/keywords: turning lathe chuck oneway talon chuck key lathe

I have a Oneway talon chuck on my delta midi-lathe. bought it used. It didn’t come with a chuck key.

None of the retail woodworking stores sell replacements. You have to go through the factory and they want almost $40!! for a dang chuck key!!

Anyone ever lost one and found a Jacobs brand (or other) replacement that worked fairly well?

Any ideas would be appreciated,

-JD

If you can afford it, buy a new talon chuck and you will get a chuck key. It is nice to have a 2nd chuck. You only need one key.

Least expensive route is go back to the manufacuturer, unless find a used chuck at reasonable price.
