I am pleased to offer a chuck designed to mount to your 3 jaw chuck for stummel work. , with the convenience of not having to change out chucks for stem work.

Peter Heeschen gets the credit for this concept. I just redesigned it a bit with American machining. Patent pending.

Where is my two jaw chuck alteration?

I stopped advertising this service due to most of my customers can do this themselves. I choose to help a professional pipe maker increase his/her efficiency with high quality innovative designed tools to help relieve the rudimentary and tedious tasks involved in making a handmade smoking pipe. Freeing up time to spend on design and aesthetics.


If you need this alteration I can refer you to a source that will do this for you.

Thank you for understanding my market and focus.

Silver& Deming (reduced shank) 1/2" shank MADE IN THE U.S.A. drill bits. S&D are nice for mounting in a drill chuck.
