Swedish VAT is 25% and they don't list a postage fee to Ireland, but if you ask them they'll arrange it. Local postage is €6, so I'd expect €10-12 or so. Not cheap, not awful.

Searched and searched to no avail. Best closest thing i could find was a youtube vid where some lad had taken a small, toothbrush sized wire brush and screwed it to a reciprocating saw blade.

I think we should make you the official woodcraft Gofer.

Now go and find me a woodturning chuck with a M39 4Pitch thread that will fit my lathe.

Sent numerous e mails to Irish (Grrr) suppliers over the last few weeks,
and the lazy sods never even answered.

So make it so JZ

What's the lathe again?

And the chuck - Dimensions and mounting hole specs would be helpful.

First port of call for me in any case would be to email tony@lathes.co.** with the ** being 'uk' - Send him the specs and mounting dimensions and see if he can supply something 'turnkey' for you. He's good with things like that.

After that, I'd be looking for:

https://www.ebay.ie/itm/M39-X-4-THRE...wAAOSwENFfDOrn

or

https://www.ebay.ie/itm/THREADED-M39...wAAOSwkzJfDOdw

Any decent machine shop would be able to machine the adapter and drill/tap to mount the chuck body.

a mains drill?
i recently stripped a bike frame using a wire brush on a battery drill (the dewalt one which woodies seem to do on special reasonably regularly) and it worked a treat.

It's what I thought also, but there's an even bigger version commonly used in the nordic countries to bore out the centre of kuksa cups. They're usually self-made but they work very well.

C.I. Fall are a really old drill bit maker from Sweden. Even today, their stuff is well respected. I have a couple of sets of their augers, a vintage set and a modern hex shanked set and they're very good. The swedes don't put up with crap for their woodworking

It was a battery one. One of the Milwaukees. I was removing lime plaster (and it just occurred to me that this is the Woodcraft zone) from a stone wall. The balls out spinning was taking me for a ride whereas what was needed was a gentle agitation. Not to worry, I'll figure something out.

Thats what I am talking about........seems to be better options outside of Ireland, all the time.

I tried to give my business to home grown suppliers, but they cant even be bothered to reply to my e mails. Even though I would be spending mucho sheckles here.

I'll give that guy an e mail and see how things go.

Lathe is a centauro, had it for about 20 years. Thread size is M39 4pitch.Total length including outboard 12' I think.

Chuck would be large size as opposed to smaller. Bowl work from 22 " diameter inboard to 44" diameter outboard. Motor 3 hp with a Variable frequency drive controller.
Magic bit of kit.

Currently using a 3 jaw chuck which has catapulted the last 2 bowls this week,
upwards and outwards due to holding only by jaws. One yew one ash.

Needless to say I am pulling the last of my hair out. I am currently working on a 15" diameter monkey puzzle bowl...........fingers crossed.

I have already seen the two ebay items.
Thats a last resort, as i have to mess with us post, time ect.

And then get someone else to prep the adaptor to fit. I was hoping for a solution
that had a quicker outcome. And then when I have to get some machine shop to machine the adaptor
to the new lathe body, its just another element that I am worried about.

Any problem with eccentricity , the it becomes....it was not me its the US end, ect,ect,ect

Thats why I really wanted a home grown solution, but both major woodturning suppliers here
never even replied. Thats why I have lost total faith in an Irish outcome.
