Sig jig rod dryer with Fuji chuck
Given the popularity of the Sig jig we now offer a compatible rod dryer fitted with a Fuji chuck. The rod dryer, when assembled matches up with the supports of the Sig jig so you can use the Sig jig to hold the far end of the rod while the turner rotates the blank. Please note: The dryer comes complete with the motor, Fuji chuck, and supports. You need to supply an extension cord to connect to 110v. service. Cords with loose ends can be found at: Lowes or Home Depot.
