Matching workholding to Dillon Manufacturing’s large-diameter (15" to 60") chucks is said to enable faster setups. Standard configurations to fit different chuck manufacturers, sizes of hard or soft top jaws, and full grip (pie) jaws are available. The jaws are available in 1018, 1045, 4140, 8620, A-2 and 6061 aluminum as well as stainless steel.
