Hi... I thought I would show the group a modification I made for my rotary attachment. The holders that come with it leave a lot to be desired. I found a couple of Maximat type chucks on ebay, and machined an adapter for them. The jaws are reversible, which allows a fairly wide variety of objects to be held concentrically, from a toothpick to a soda pop can. They can also hold simple jigs such as hollow centers and pointed centers. The chucks are 2" in diameter.

Oh, and my machine is a ULS machine.

Nice! I like it. I hate the wheels on my rotary. Very hard to get centered. Do you do any glass, and if so, do you use something to protect the glass?

No glass, but if I did, I would try sticky back rubber on the jaws.

Bumping this to the top. Hello Epilog, we need an attachment for a lathe chuck! Pretty please :)

Since the chuck shown is circular, could you just scab a piece of round to the end and then place that assembly on your wheel type assembly.

Someone did something similar for a pen holder in recent months, just smaller

Here's one that might work with a little modification. It's strong enough that I can do drag engraving without support at one end.

Epilog already has a 3-jaw chuck but only for the FiberMark series.....

Anyone happen to know the pinouts for a epilog rotary or any other specs. I have numerous stepper motors and would love to just make my own
