Chuck for a Wen lathe
Posted by: Carl Butler (---)

I was looking to pickup a 3 jaw chuck for my Wen 3420 lathe. Can I get a chuck that will fit this lathe, and where should I go to find one?

In addition, if you purchase any tapered pieces for the head stock or the tail stock, be aware that the Wen 3420 uses the MT1 taper. So, buy any accessories accordingly.

As Johathan indicated the head stock thread size is 1x8 TPI for any sort of screw on chuck as he indicated.

Carl if you end up needing any more specialized tooling that is MT1 in the future just drop me a line. I've spent alot of time tracking down decent MT1 parts as they are not very common.
