Workholding

Different Workpieces Require Different Workholding

Sometimes You Need Something Bigger


If the standard workholding just won’t do, then trust us to supply you with what you need – direct from Haas.

Lathe Tailstocks


All Haas lathes are available with an optional tailstock. From the MT3 manual-positioning tailstock for the ST-10 and ST-15, to the MT5 fully programmable tailstock for the ST-40 machines, we have you covered. There’s even an MT6 tailstock for our largest turning centers.

chuck installation guide
Follow along as we remove and re-install a 10" power chuck on a Haas ST-30. Then, we review the installation of a collet chuck, and the removal of smaller chucks that can be lifted by hand. Finally, we adjust the runout of a manual chuck on a Haas TL-1 Toolroom Lathe.
