All the chucks I have seen have essentially identical function with the exception of 3 jaw bs 4 jaw. Get the 4 jaw. Beyond that they all do the same work. The only thing to consider is how much you want to spend. I own a oneway talon because I have an odd spindle size and their chuck can work on my machine without an adapter. Its a great chuck and does the job but is expensive.

The only other thing to consider is if you are going to upgrade your lathe anytime soon. Its silly to buy a mini lathe chuck now if in a year you are going to want to be turning large bowls on a full size lathe. Better to buy a full size chuck that can be used on either.
