Retention Knobs

For years the retention knob has not been looked at as a critical component. A retention knob can be your first source of chatter, poor tool life and run out. With an increase in drawbar force, higher feed rates and exotic materials, load forces being placed on retention knobs have greatly increased. These components should be inspected throughout the year and a typical retention knob should be replaced every three years if not sooner.

Lechers’ retention knobs are made of the highest quality materials on the market. We take the extra step and expense to offer knobs that exceed exacting specifications.

We offer a vast array of styles of retention knobs and custom manufactured knobs for unique situations.
