Introducing a standard Northfield Model 470 (2-jaw) sliding-jaw Air Chuck with highly specialized top tooling. This tooling was developed in conjunction with our customer to allow side-loading of their part (not shown) into the very center of the small cylindrical insert pads (which have been wire-cut from solid for accuracy) at the top of the photo.
