Does anyone know if / where i can obtain a 4 jaw scroll chuck for my Rikon 70-050VS lathe. I saw a project that I would like to do and the article says I need a 4 jaw scroll chuck to hold the stock. I’ve done some looking and most that I’ve seen are for specific lathes (i.e. Grizzly, etc.) Any help on this is appreciated. Thank you.

That lathe uses a pretty standard 1”x8tpi threaded spindle, so any chuck that will work with 1”x8tpi is what you want. There are very few ‘lathe specific’ chucks out there. BTW, the Baracuda 2 chuck is on sale now for $139 for the set (chuck + 4 jaw sets). There are plenty others out there as well, just take your pick.

That’s a good price on a chuck! You might check out Hurricane products too, they are usually very reasonable…
