From what I have heard the Easy chuck sounds real nice; Nova has a similar Infinity on Amazon for about $260.

If you go with a standard chuck I would go with insert type in the event you ever decide to get a larger lathe. At least in the Nova line, the G3-D (made for Delta) and the G3 for the Comet are direct threaded and do not accept an insert; I would go with the insert type. While nice, for many people it is too costly to convert over (I have 4 G3’s and 3 SN’s and SN2’s).

Starting out with the Easy or the Infinity should save you money down the road.
The only drawback is some folks like to leave projects mounted while working on another and you can’t do that with the quick change. I never do that myself even though I have several chucks.
