Sometimes my chuck gets so tight on the lathe it is very difficult to remove. There is no provision for putting a wrench on the chuck. You can get some leverage by inserting the chuck key but I have always been reluctant to apply too much pressure that way. The chuck key apparatus was not met for that purpose.
I prefer to use a boa constrictor wrench (a rubber belt wrench) but even with that it can be very hard to get the chuck loose.
Does anyone have a tip a tip on a better way to remove a chuck from the lathe?
