This chuck is the replacement for the former model 48232. Differences – the 48232 came with the woodworm screw, this does not; this newer version is righty tighty lefty loosey – a commonly sought after change over the older model; and the jaw slides themselves are no longer numbered – you simply put the jaws (which are numbered) on in clockwise order.
