If this is your lathe, save your money and learn to use your faceplate. If really, have to have a chuck think skinny and lighter. Why lack of horsepower and distance between centers.

These chucks might make more sense:

Actually tommy bar chucks make more sense on all mini lathes because they are lighter and compact do not decrease distance between centers as much as single key chucks. Single key chuck bodies little bigger and heavier. Some of those chucks recommended do not come with big jaw assortment not to worry. Do not need many for a lathe with only 8” swing.
