    Yeah I figured it wouldn't bring near the original manufactures cost (over $2k) which is why I priced it the way I did.. I looked into other buck chucks similar and tried to price accordingly. And part of cleaning it up I made sure to not hit it with any abrasives because I knew that would be a bad idea. Anyways, thanks for the hospitality, cheers to you too.

    It would be nice to know if this chuck is made of tool steel or 'semisteel'. And - does anyone else find it anomalous that this chuck has only one adjusting point? And no wrench?

    I'm not going to publicly comment on the price. If it were just what I wanted I'd pay that.

    One adjusting point is ALL any set tru style chuck will have . Idea there is to eliminate any possible variance between multiple adjustment points and the scroll. After all the idea is to make the chuck as accurate and repeatable as possible.

    I have a like new 12" 6 jaw Adjust-Tru Buck that was made in 1966, when it sold for $496, plus $66 for the mount. That was 25% of a new car - $2368 would get you a new Mustang. In 2019 dollars that is $4385.

    First $3000 gets it

    To the OP
    If you do a search for "lathe buck chuck" on ebay you get current listing, many of which are optimisticly priced. As you scroll down, on left hand side of page you will see a little box with "Sold" next to it, click on that box, it will show you recent sales and pricing. If price has a line thru it that means seller was asking that price, yet accepted a lower offer, we do not get to see accepted price.

    The dimensions you sent me for the backing plate are meaningless, If you cannot figure out what you have, it makes any potential buyer somewhat skeptical, add in a novice working on it, and that does not help.

    Your use of evaporust on it is a negative in my eye, not saying the stuff is without merit as I have something soaking in it right now. But if that chuck was only slightly rusty, the proper cleaner should have been elbow grease, I like my chucks shiny, not grey.

    If backing plate is A1-5, I might be interested in trading something, trust me, I have tons of shop/industrial stuff, you name it, if I don't have it I can get it, and make it a sweet trade for both of us.

    I will post pictures of the measurements, I'm assuming it's a A1- 6 but I'll go ahead and post pics anyways.

    And the reason I chose evaporust is because It doesn't attack parent metal but just targets the oxides through chelation processes. I tested a very small inconspicuous spot with a scotch pad and the grey comes off with ease. i just rather leave it grey for someone else to polish up if that's how they want it.

    Possible trade interests:
    10k taper attachment.
    set of micrometers.
    Gauge blocks.
    Clay graphite crucibles (larger preferred).
    Prime rib. (12 oz minimum)
    A good dial indicator. (.5 or .1 thou)
    A VFD and/or phase converter.
    Rivet tooling.
    Pressure swing adsorption setup (molecular sieve, oil free regulators/gauges, etc).
    Strong vacuum pump.
    Various stock.
    Cash is always king though.

    Take a look at this chart, hopefully you can identify it.
    Lathe Spindle Nose Mounting Systems

    I have a schload of micrometers but they are in Nv. I have 2 dial indicators here, a cheapie no name made in china .001 , and an Interapid .0001 , and I think there are a few more in shop drawer. Only VFD I have at moment is 480v input, probably not what you need, but tomorrow is another day. If you want to diy an RPC I have 3ph motors from 1hp to 30hp, and could toss in a few contactors, relays and capacitors. 3 large vac pumps, largest from a CNC router table, other 2 from a lab, all are 3ph.

    Let me know if you need more info or pics on anything.

    Bob, I thank you for stopping by.
    I'm not 100% sure that it is the correct backplate, but it is the one that was attached to the chuck when I got it, also it fits the chuck like a charm. I refuse to take claim that it is for sure the right one because that's usually about the time I'm wrong about something. But I got a strong feeling it is.

    Looking at that chart I believe it'd be an Ax-6 (some of the measurements are off by upto .2 to .3 but I'll re measure when I get home from work.

    If you would please post some pictures of the interapid, and some more info on the vac pumps?

    Edit: that is, if you're still interested knowing it's an Ax-6

    My apologies on the assumption of the chemistry of evaporust. Sometimes my arrogance and hast gets the best of me. I stick to my guns on the rest. Why don’t you put it on the auction block and return with the results

    I'll inspect vac pumps tomorrow and get more info if they check out, and get pics of Interapid indicator and a few more. Might be evening till I get back .

    I'm still interested if back plate is not what I need, bought a lathe last year with no chucks and need to get it going.

    I checked out the 2 lab vac pumps yesterday, sadly they soured in storage (pumps locked up). Was hoping to inspect the big one today, but high winds and opening that door could launch me, I'll try again tomorrow.

    Only true on the little chucks. My 15" Buck has 3 pinions, and 8 adjusting screws.

    Since we're doing some locker room chuck comparisons, I'll add that the 18" Buck six-jaw on my Monarch NN is also three pinions and eight adjusting screws.
