Specialized Vacuum-ready Hand Wheels for woodturning lathes

To facilitate the implementation of vacuum chucking for as many turners as possible, we have developed a number of lathe-specific hand wheels for use with our Precision Vacuum Adapter.  These wheels are made from the same aircraft quality billet aluminum as our adapters, and are designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards of dimensional tolerance, machining quality and finish.

This is the JT wheel for Jet mini lathes, with Precision Vacuum Adapter also installed.  A great way to make your mini vacuum capable. JT's Custom Hand Wheel for Oneway 24", 20", 16" series lathes - a real improvement in safety and convenience for these lathes.

Produced to exactly mate with our Precision Vacuum Adapter, these hand wheels act as replacements for the factory-supplied hand wheels on certain lathe models, and provide the turner with the ability to convert to vacuum chuck capability quickly and easily, also providing a more secure and usable hand wheel.  A single Precision Vacuum Adapter can be utilized on multiple lathes when each lathe is equipped with our lathe-specific hand wheel product.

If you would just like a more comfortable hand wheel than the factory model, our custom hand wheels will fit the bill - and you can always move up to the addition of a Precision Vacuum Adapter whenever you are ready.  Oneway and Nova owners should view the expanded information about these hand wheels shown below on this page.

In all cases, these custom hand wheels are a  superior product, providing a better hand wheel of aircraft quality material, machined to closer tolerances and more "hand friendly" than stock factory hand wheels.  Our hand wheels are also offered as part of a Precision Vacuum Adapter Kit for many popular lathe models, and solve the problems often associated with adapting a vacuum system to these specific lathes.

Complete Precision Vacuum Adapter Kits, including a lathe-specific hand wheel and a Precision Vacuum Adapter, are available on our Precision Vacuum Adapters page.  Order hand wheels only below.

Custom Hand Wheels for Oneway 24", 20", and 16" series lathes

Our striking and substantial custom hand wheels for the large Oneway lathe series befit the power, high quality, and status of Oneway's premium lathe models.  With 6" diameter and 1" thick smoothly radiused rim, they provide a superb addition, as the large Oneways do not come with a hand wheel from the factory.  More hand-friendly and safer than having a faceplate serve as a hand wheel, they are a very important option for Oneway owners, as they provide additional comfort, convenience, and safety. 

A production run of Oneway compatible Hand Wheels - ready for shipment.

Of course, if you so choose, they are also ready to receive our standard Precision Vacuum Adapter which provides significantly more convenience and ease of use than the standard Oneway vacuum adapter.  Because the Precision Vacuum Adapter is "plug-and-play" into this hand wheel, switching to vacuum chucking requires only seconds - the hand wheel stays in place and the vacuum adapter just plugs in.  Nothing could be easier, more convenient, or more efficient - saving you time and aggravation every time you need to employ vacuum chucks.

Custom Hand Wheels for Nova Hand DVR-XP, DVR, 3000, & 1624 lathes

Similar in appearance to the Oneway wheels, the custom hand wheels we manufacture for the Nova series of lathes provide convenience and comfort as compared to the thin, small diameter hand wheel available from the factory.  Safer and easier to use, they also provide more leverage when changing chucks and accessories on the Nova DVR-XP, DVR, 3000, and 1624 model lathes.  Of course, if you so choose, they are also ready to receive our standard Precision Vacuum Adapter which provides significantly more convenience and ease of use than solutions available from other manufacturers.  Because the Precision Vacuum Adapter is "plug-and-play" into this hand wheel, switching to vacuum chucking requires only seconds - nothing could be easier or more convenient.  One of our customers recently wrote: " I am extremely pleased with my new Nova adapter and hand wheel. You can use me as a reference anytime.  I have already told a buddy about your adapters. He is anxious to come and see mine.  Thanks again."  (Nova DVR) - David M. in Texas

These hand wheels mount to the Nova factory "left hand wheel" part, standard on many Nova lathes.  You will need to order this part if you do not already have it.  Contact us if you are not sure of your situation and we will assist you.
