Re: Stuck Jacobs Chuck: another method
Jon Spear <jdspear@...>
I had a similar problem with a chuck on an MT2 shank. I turned the shank down to 1/2-inch, and cut threads on the shank. Then I placed a cylindrical tube around the shank, and a plate with a 1/2-inch hole over the shank. I cranked down on a nut, which pulled the shank out.
This, of course, destroys the shank.

Subject: [southbendlathe] Stuck Jacobs Chuck
I have a Jacobs 6A chuck on a MT to Jacobs adapter. I cannot remove it by the usual means. Since this has crossed everyone's plate at one time or another I am hoping that someone will have an idea. OTHER THEN BEATING THE #%$$!!?? TO DEATH.
