I've been wanting a chuck for my Jet mini lathe. I checked out the ads on Amazon, Woodcraft and others, and the PSI Barracuda seemed like a good choice (http://www.amazon.com/PSI-Woodworkin...370877&sr=8-5). A post by Bill Grumbine helped convince me (http://sawmillcreek.org/showpost.php...50&postcount=3) So when Amazon put it on sale for $133.00, I ordered one. It arrived yesterday, and I'm impressed with it. I think for my needs, it will serve me well for quite a while.
As soon as my bandsaw blades come in from Highland Woodworking, I'll cut some blanks and give it a try.
