Ever wonder how to remove a draw nut from a power chuck?
Below is a photo tutorial on removing a draw nut, using a smaller Strong N204 4”-diameter power chuck for reference.
Turn the power chuck body upside-down so that it’s sitting on its soft top jaws.
Remove adapter plate using 6 Allen wrenches from the mounting hardware packet.
Remove wedge plunger nut using 6 Allen wrenches.
Pull out wedge plunger nut along with adapter nut. Push off and remove.
All AutoStrong power chucks come standard with blank draw nut. This means the “adapter nut” is blank/solid, and needs to be threaded to fit the machine’s draw bar.
Most customers/machinists are able to thread their adapter nuts themselves. For our customers’ convenience, we stock a range of standard threaded draw nuts.
You can find part two of a nut extraction in a video form here.
