    Default Evening All

    Newbie to this forum and also woodworking. Have. Taken it up as a retirement hobby. I recently bought a Ryobi 970 mm timber lathe. Seems to work ok for me (the chisels that came with it are not real good). I would like to fit a chuck to it however the thread appears to be “non standard” at 18mm. Has anyone bought a chuck for these lathes or can recommend one? Thanks in advance.

    i think if you search around (and if that model is the one that the big green store sells) then the common thread is take it back and spend your money elsewhere, as nothing standard fits it and making it "work" with things you can get is a frustrating and expensive experience and not worth the effort. Sorry for not sugar coating it!

    Expanding chuck for ryobi thread
    it will be a likely bet even these days it’s not a metric thread
