advice for first chuck?
well, i mostly do spindle turning, but also quite a bit of finial work, coat pegs, etc...
i would like to buy myself a good chuck.
my lathe is a 50s delta 1460, 12/36", with a 1"X8tpi spindle.
i'm thinking about the oneway talon. would this be appropriate? is the "stronghold" too big/overkill for my lathe?
i've seen the barracuda one but i'd rather spend another $100 on something a bit higher quality. what's nice about the barracuda is that it comes with multiple sets of jaws. annoying to have to buy them separately at $50 a pop.
but i also want the best quality.
any advice would be appreciated.
