The VM150 has two actions, one to quickly open and close the chuck as though it was lever 
operated (fully opens within 3 revolutions), the other to tighten using the 'T' key as you 
would in a standard key operated scroll chuck.
WORLD FIRST revolutionary new chuck design
  • DUAL ACTION opening and closing 
  • Jaws and Inserts compatible with the VM120 
  • Stronger, larger Backing Jaws
  • Can be used for turning in reverse
  • Backing Jaws will not protrude past Chuck Body for safety

To switch from lever operated to key operated, line up the two dots as shown above, and rotate the locking pinion using the 10mm T-bar (supplied with the chuck). Turn clockwise to engage and anti-clockwise to disengage



This chuck gives you the possibility if you have the capability. 

Ideal for professional turners as a time saver.

  • Vicmarc designed saftey ring allows you to turn in reverse without the chuck coming undone from the spindle.
