    Default Need help with installing Forkardt chuck onto Schaublin 135

    Hello,

    I'm a fresh new owner of 1967 Schaublin 135.
    When bought F160/D4 Forkardt chuck was included.
    As stated I have troubles with installing it. I have never used D4 camlock chuck before. I don't think there should be some extra science behind properly installing it but I just cant manage it to tight it evenly, therefore to sit fully onto the spindle flange. Pins doesn't look damaged at all, I have also tried to screw/unscrew them, trying to catch that optimum depth so the counter pin can smoothly grab the radius but no success. I managed to safely secure only 2 of them but not all three...
    Does anyone have some fresh advice about that?

    Here are also some pictures of the chuck...

    AS,

    Two thoughts:

    1. Do your camlock studs have a reference ring (turned witness mark)? That mark is a good starting point for the pin adjustment. It is supposed to be co-planar with the flat mounting face of the chuck.

    2. Have you tried removing the studs altogether and test fitting the chuck? The taper should make contact ever so slightly before the flat face. But only just barely! Inspect the studs for straightness.

    Kind Regards,

    Don
