3990 Tower jaws for the Stronghold
Tower jaws like this one (3990) are made to clamp long work such as a vase, for example. The 3990 is the largest size tower jaws for the Stronghold chuck with ribbed insides. These ridges squeeze into the wood and provide a firm grip. At the end of the jaws, the steel on the inside extends into a dovetail so you can also use it for a shorter workpiece, this again saves changing jaws.
Manufacturer Oneway from Canada has several types of jaws.
- Dovetail jaws. (Dovetail, smooth) Precise grip on scales, for example. Work best on 1 specific diameter, namely when the jaws together form exactly a circle.
- Serrated jaws (Serrated) The ridges grip the wood. Work best on 1 specific diameter, i.e. when the jaws together form exactly a circle.
- Ribbed and profiled (Premium Profiled) The jaws are not round on the inside but are profiled in such a way that square wood or other shapes can also be clamped well. The jaws are ribbed.
- Tower jaws are high jaws, made to hold long workpieces. Tower jaws are available both “premium profiled” and “serrated”.
