Dear friends

I need your help because I have lost the key of the chuck on my old lathe Simat 101. It is a crank chuck with 72 mm diameter. I am not able to post a picture of it because I am not expert. So I'd like to know if there is a seller willing to sell this key or someone that has one and give me for money.

I canot use the lathe without this item.

Please give your suggestions or your help. Thank you

Is it a drill chuck type key ?

If so what diameter are the holes in the chuck where the key fits for opening/closing ?

Also on the other thread, Rejon replied to me and said they couldn't supply one; at least that's what I took their reply to mean. indecision

Short term fix might be a strap wrench and tommy bar. I have a small chuck with the outside ring knurled and a tommy bar hole and that is all that it needs for a good grip.

At least I have learned something from this discussion:

The geometry troubled me a little, as I have only really considered quite narrow 'contrate' wheels ... a little searching revealed that this might be better be termed a 'Crown Face Gear' and that the geometry can indeed be a little complex: **LINK**

[ not that I would really expect the gearing of chuck and key to be made to close tolerance ]
