On mini lathes want to buy a chuck weighing 5 LBS or less. Not to worry too many scroll chucks out there fit the bill weight wise. If not mistaken Barracuda C series chucks weigh 3.5 lbs.

On a super mini Lathe like LeChuck’s size and weight does matter. Look at the headstock, spindle size, and motor, and distance between centers.

There are a couple of heavy duty chucks weighing 8 to 10 LBS out there made by Axminster, Nova, Oneway, and Vicmarc, that might give you and your lathe fits.
