+1 on hairy’s recommendation.

While there may be some benefit in buying a chuck that you can move to a bigger lathe down the road, putting an 8-pound chuck on a mini or midi lathe doesn’t make much sense to me.

Also, if you buy a big, expensive chuck now, what would you do in the future if one of the manufacturers comes out with a new feature that you just can’t live without?
