Finish the bottom of your turned wood bowls and other vessels with our Vacuum Chuck. CNC machined from solid aluminum.

How to use this wood lathe chuck:
  • Thread the vacuum chuck onto the lathe spindle
  • Using a 3/8" ID plastic tube, connect a good vacuum supply to the 3/8" OD tube that passes through the headstock from the chuck.
  • Position your turning on the chuck and turn on the vacuum.
  • Smile because you now have a great way to finish your turnings!

Note: A vacuum swivel is not needed with this chuck because the tube inside the chuck is mounted in a bearing so it remains stationary as the chuck rotates.


  • Threads: select from 1", 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" available in the drop down box above.
  • Outside diameter: 3.5"
  • Overall length: 4"
  • Steel tube length: Select the length you need from the two options 18.5" or 20.75" beyond the end of the chuck. 
  • Chuck material: 6061 aircraft aluminum
