As a customer driven family business with over 30 years experience, we pride ourselves on the fact that we retain many of our original customers by providing excellent service and value for money.

As time progresses, we become even more unique, as the number of companies with expertise in the field of Workholding and Tooling diminishes. Certainly, those companies able to supply the vast range of products are few and far between today.

The main services we offer are outlined below, and within the pages of the website – but if you require assistance with any machining problems, or sourcing of equipment that is not shown, please do not hesitate to contact us – we are keen to help.


Our on site services are wide ranging…. We are able to fully install all the systems we provide, either on site at the end user, or at source point for the machine in question.

This is accomplished by our own engineers, or where required a team of specially selected subcontractors, covering the whole UK.We offer full testing and assessment of workholding equipment utilising the latest in test equipment, and can supply spares, replacements or alternative solutions to rectify your problems.

We can offer a comprehensive Preventative Maintenance Programme (PMP) for your chucks and chucking cylinders to ensure your machines stay running safely, and stock a wide range of specialist lubricants, greases and assembly pastes for smooth and efficient running of chucks


We can offer a full repair service on chucks and cylinders in our own well equipped workshop. For more complex repairs on items such as Rotary Tables, CNC Driven Tooling etc, we offer a return to works service, and in some instances a service exchange

Keeping the wheels of industry turning. Regardless of age and manufacturer, we are able to source spares worldwide, and can often find those elusive parts long since made obsolete.

In the case where items are deemed beyond repair, a full report will be issued, and a direct or near equivalent will be offered.We undertake repair of: Manual Chucks, Power Chucks, Cylinders, Collet Chucks, Collets, Revolving Centres, Facedrivers, Expanding Mandrels, Steadyrests, Driven Toolholders, Static Holders, Milling Cutters & Lathe or Tools (Reclamation)


In house design utilising the latest in CAD technology on side by side stations ensures the “right first time” approach to all our special projects.

We can provide design service only if required, however our price for Special product complete includes design, making us highly competitive.

Our Design department specialises in: Special Chucks, Chuck Adaptors & Connectors, Ejector Mechanisms, Special Jaws, Special Fixtures, Special Manual Steadyrests, Bracketry for Hydraulic Steadys, Special Mandrels, Mandrels, Inspection Jigs
