This year has been year of the top for me, trying to make as many different kinds as possible. Although on my list for a while, I was unsure if I could pull off a multi axis one. After a few false starts, came up with an idea for a eccentric chuck that seemed to work well. Yes it spins!

Collet chuck screwed onto threaded rod. Rotated to get different axes. (Piece in chuck was practice)
