Mounting Plates For “SETRITE”® 3 Jaw and 6 Jaw - 253 & 263 Series Chucks
PBA offers a full line of Mounting Plates type "D", "A", "L" and threaded plates for the "SETRITE"® Chucks. PBA Mounting Plates are interchangeable with other popular adjustable universal style Chucks.

Mounting plates are precision machined to suit the spindle nose of your machine. For maximum accuracy of "SETRITE"® mounting plates, mount plate on machine spindle nose, place a dial indicator on the chuck side face of the adapter close to the mounting holes, rotate the adapter and if the total indicator reading (TIR) exceeds .0005" take a light truing cut across the face of the mounting plate.
