ABOUT THIS CATEGORY

Chuck keys are toothed tools used for tightening and loosening the jaws of a chuck to accommodate a rotating tool. The teeth of the chuck keys should mate with the teeth of the chuck to produce the torque needed to move its jaws. Chuck holders, on the other hand, are self-centering clamps that hold a tool. They normally have three jaws or dogs that are adjusted using a scroll gear.
