The BT1030A sports a 5 inch 3 Jaw Chuck and comes standard with two sets of jaws. If your work piece requires more gripping, we do offer a 5 inch 4 jaw chuck that won't let you down.

Don't let the power specifications fool you, this machine's spindle speeds are 150 rpm - 2000 rpm's and it won't break the bank with electricla cost running at 110v, Single Phase and 1HP.
