Chucks & Parts

“It’s hard to believe that a set of bruised knuckles was the impetus for one of the most significant industrial advancements in the 20th Century.

Arthur Irving Jacobs was never one for leaving things alone. He was always improving them – continually coming up with new ways of working and new gadgets to do the work…

On one particular occasion, he was working with an old style drill press, trying to hold belt control with one hand, and applying the spanner wrench to the other. The wrench slipped and he badly battered his knuckles… In a matter of days, he had developed the first drill chuck with a toothed sleeve and key.”

Used on a wide range of applications, from CNC machines to cordless portable drills, General Supply and Metals has the chucks, parts, and bits you need.
