I recently sold my complete chuck set,and rebought a complete new axminster power tools precison chuck.Now the newer version from mine has a stainless steel body which I would prefer.The reason I went with this is that their jaws are all made in store with a cnc lathe and are very reasonably priced compared to other makers.I find that no matter which chuck you buy out of the good ones on offer the accessory jaws are too expensive.
Now with the axminster you can buy more or less a full set and use them with several bodies for different lathes. I bought two of their chucks with backplates which fit both of my wood lathes.I had to make one of their backplates to my own thread spec in my own shop with a set tap dies I bought ouch expensive,beacause the didn’t make that thread size at the time.Now for a price they will make to order whatever thread sizes you need.Alistair
