Manual Chucks are used for many applications. Essentially a Manual Chuck is used for basic turning operations on Centre and Turret Lathes, however it is not uncommon for this type of chuck to be used on CNC Machines where the application allows. It is also quite common for a Manual Chuck to be used in a Milling application, either fixed to the bed of the machine via an adaptor, or to a forth or fifth axis unit.
