I have a 20 x 28 workshop with a 12 x 24 attached garage that I am setting up to do metalwork along with woodwork. Before retiring I built jeeps, buggys and motorcycles. Now I plan on doing more artistic projects with metal and wood. I have been fascinated by the creativity of the craftsmen on YouTube and plan on seeing what I can make.

Greetings,
I am fairly new to wood turning and looking for advice on chucks. Recently bought a Jet 1221VS and have been researching what my options are.
The Nova G3 and Barracuda 2 seem well liked but I was wondering if they would be too small for a larger lathe as I am planning on getting a larger lathe (1-1/4” spindle) down the road so I want to purchase chucks that would be usable on it also.
I see they have come out with quick jaw change chucks, what are opinions on that feature?
A reversible chuck is good for sanding but are there other benefits to them?
Penn State Industries has a Barracuda 5 quick change kit for aprox. $250 but I can not down find any reviews on it, any thoughts on it?
I don’t have an unlimited budget but believe it is better to purchase quality products that last rather than replace them later on.
Lastly, I plan to make pens, bowls, boxes and calls.
Thanks in advance for your opinions.
