Welcome to the forum.
At your leisure, go through some of the woodturning threads and you'll find some very fun reading. I always recommend to new turners to see if there are any local woodturning clubs in your area, say within an 1 1/2 hour drive. It's worth it to join a club. Always a nice bunch of guys and your learning curve will be shortened tremendously. It's a lot easier to learn it right the first time, then to unlearn bad or unsafe habits. Just for instance, at our club, we had Jimmy Clewes do an all day demo last saturday, then a small group class on sunday. Great demo, very informative, wonderful turner.
I also have a jet 1642, but have a Vicmark chuck on it. You may want to check it out, one of the easiest chucks to use and very well made. I believe the model number is a VM120.
