I’ve seen them and couldn’t figure out any advantage of a lighter chuck. Never had an issue with steel chucks with the lathe getting to speed. With larger bowl blanks it takes a while for the piece to coast to a stop, but it’s the mass of the wood more than the chuck. Also, what happens when that aluminum chuck and/or jaws are inevitably dropped on a concrete floor?
