Yes Mike there are other options. Glue blocks, double sided tape….... There is more than one way to skin the cat. I would recommend going with the old ways first and then later on go with the chuck. Spend your money first on quality turning tools, respirator, and a slow speed grinder. Take a look at the Benjamin turning tool set at Pen State Industries. They have great reviews so far.
