[atlas_craftsman] Cushman Chuck
- Well my Cushman chuck arrived and I just finished machining a
backplate for it. I did cheat a little I took the one off my damaged 6". I
have a problem though. I plan to use the threaded holes that normally hold
the D3 cam studs. Does anyone know what these holes are tapped for? Darned
if I can! Seems to be 10X1 metric, but that is not one of the standard sizes.

- Last week, after fixing the carriage engage lever on my 12"Atlas (
thanks to this group!) I now want to get my old 5" 3 jaw Cushman fixed.
It need jaws, and I have been unable to find a source for them.... I
bought a 6" Bison, but the cushman would be nice to have for smaller
jobs... Any ideas, or is it obsolete and not worth the expense? Thanks,
- I also have a 5" Cushman 3-jaw scroll chuck that could use some new
I have e-mailed Cushman but got no response. I will call them today.
know if you come up with a source for jaws.
- Jim, I also went to their website and e-mailed them, so far no luck.
Mine is reference number 3005, I am not sure what all the differences
are, but I did notice that their site does not list any 5" chucks....
I do have a line on some 4" 3 jaw, threaded for 1-1/2X8, it may be that
I can get some kinda Thanks for getting the info to me, If you find
anything out about jaws, let me know Mike
