I finally got a chuck!

And a little bit of cedar. The chuck is this one:

It's not the fanciest, t-bar yada, yada, yada, but it's better than I had.

Nice bowl Tim, did you use the screw chuck to mount your bowl?

Jeff,

Slat,
Looks nice. I think I have that same chuck. It worked fine and did its' job. Just don't overdue it with the bars and slip, good way to skin a knuckle. Someone told me that could happen......

I'll be careful of that Mike, thanks for the warning.
Jeff, I had that bowl half turned between centers before hand, so I haven't use the screw yet. I will soon though (today or tomorrow ).

I used a Tommy bar chuck for years. I actually prefer them for some things. I have arthitis in one wrist and when it acts up it's hard to use the keyed chucks. I can use the Tommy Bar chuck.

Tim, Nice looking bowl. I'm in the market for a chuck right now. I keep coming up with ideas for something and then I can't really do it w/o the chuck. I bought my lathe used and it had no faceplate with it so I'm kinda s.o.l. on any bowl making or such. Happy turning.
