The Rose Chuck is similar in nature to the Rose Cutting Frame. With the Rose Chuck, the chuck is affixed to the spindle nose of a simple lathe, and the object being held is moved according to the design of the rosette which is also affixed to the Rose Chuck. It was developed in the early days when rose engine lathes were rare.
