Removing an Arbor from a Chuck
« on: August 11, 2018, 01:37:05 PM »
I posted this in another forum where someone was in difficulty, but thought it would be useful to put it here as well:


Warm the chuck in boiling water keeping the arbor cold with a wet rag . Have a glass of salty water and crushed ice standing by well mixed, when the chuck is good and hot plunge the arbor (only the arbor) into the freezing water and you will find that the taper far easier to tap off due to the expansion of the chuck and contraction of the arbor.
