At R.D. Barrett we’ve used our 40 years’ of experience in the trade to handpick a selection of engineering workholding products. You’ll find everything from the humble G-clamp to high-precision 4-jaw independent chuck lathes and everything else in between.

Angle plates

Angle plates are essential manufacturing and metalworking fixtures used to hold a workpiece securely in place while it’s being machined. We’ve got both fixed-angle plates and adjustable angle plates in stock and ready to ship.

Chuck backplates & adaptors

Chuck back plates mount a chuck to a lathe spindle before operation. We stock high-quality Pratt Burnerd Camlock Back Plates in a variety of standard and special chuck sizes and fittings that are perfect for your modular workholding system.


From face plates to heavy-duty G clamps, we’ve got a vast variety of clamping devices in stock and ready to go. You’ll find workholding systems and accessories from brand names including Carver, Faithfull and Moore & Wright at the best prices.

Lathe chucks & jaws

Precision engineered and built to perform, we’ve got a huge selection of lathe chucks and jaws. Whether you’re looking for a simple Bison Manual Collett chuck, self-centring 3-jaw chuck, or 4-jaw independent chuck, you’ll find it at R.D. Barrett. We’ve built a reputation for our knowledge, insight and personal service and are always on hand to discuss your workholding requirements. Our range of lathe chucks and jaws is the best in the UK, and we’re able to supply high-quality parts in a variety of sizes, in many cases delivering to your door within days.

Lifting magnets

Never struggle with flat and round section steel again. At R.D. Barrett, we stock Eclipse LM-series lifting magnets in a range of sizes. These high-quality machines use a high-intensity neodymium magnet that provides the highest power-to-weight ratio around.

Power chuck jaws

In stock at R.D. Barrett, you’ll always find a selection of hard jaws, soft jaws and pie jaws suitable for Kitagawa power chucks. The design and manufacture of these high-specification parts make them ideal for any machine shop.

Power chucks

Power chucks automatically secure a workpiece using pneumatic or hydraulic power, providing consistent pressure on the workpiece in your CNC machine. We carry exceptional quality Kitagawa power chucks, including the BB206 170mm-Large Thru-Hole Power Chuck and BB208 210mm-Large Thru-Hole Power Chuck at the lowest prices around.


Tailstocks provide extra support for your workpiece when it’s on the machine table. We have hard-wearing Bison tailstocks in a variety of centre heights, from 100mm to 250mm.


Vices are as vital as any machine tool and are an essential investment that will deliver years of faithful service. We carry drill vices, engineering vices and machine vices that will find a home in any workshop. You’ll find products from trusted brands such as Bison, Irwin Record and Rohm.
