46-460 and supernova2?

I'm new to turning so I apologies if this is a dumb question. But I'm looking at the Delta 46-460 and was wondering if the Supernova 2 chuck will fit it? In reading the specs I think I just need a 1"-8 threaded adapter right?

I like the SN2 cause of the allen key over the geared key and I can use it on a bigger lathe if I ever upgrade. Or is this a bad idea?

Yes, you just need to purchase the appropriate adapter.

If you upgrade to a different lathe with a different thread on the headstock, then all you need is the relevant different adapter.

Yes, it will fit, just buy the proper 1"-8tpi insert. Thats a really heavy chuck though. The G3 is much more fitting to the 46-460 IMO.

Thanks for the replys.

I have one more little question. What is a good grit wheel for the grinder to sharpen turning tools?

My grinder came stock with a 120 and 80 grit wheels. I use the 120 side for most everything.
