Dan, the HF Jet clone uses #2 MT.

LeChuck: the 4 jaw is much better for bowl turning, but is useful for other things too. I use it to grip the insides of round knobs when I’m sanding and refinishing them.

The Jacob’s chuck is pretty essential for, e.g. making knobs and tool handles. The cone live center is just a better live center than the one that the lathe comes with.
