Dillon full grip jaws, machined from 6061 extruded aluminum for increased strength, are now available up to 28” in diameter. Machining from barstock eliminates the porosity inherent with large diameter aluminum castings, providing a stronger and more reliable workholding product, the company says. These jaws can be modified to heights of 10” and widths that extend beyond the chuck face diameter, thus increasing the chuck’s capacity. Dillon Chuck Jaws can provide both standard and special pie jaws in 1.5mm × 60-degree, 3.0 mm × 60-degree, 1/16th × 90-degree and 3/32 × 90-degree serrations, American standard and metric tongue and groove, and acme and square serrated key-type mounting interfaces. Also available in 1018 CR steel and cast iron. Most standard and special jaw modification have less than a two-week lead time.
