I want to buy a chuck for my old delta lathe. The Teknatool Supernova 2 is on sale at woodcraft, and it seems a pretty good buy. It apparently comes with jaws that fit a dovetail profile cut on bowl bottoms and the like. This is fine, but will these jaws will also hold straight (non-dovetail) tenons? It would be nice to use this for other round stock without having to make the dovetail shape.
The PSI Barracuda also seems like a good alternative. The price difference is pretty much negligible, though the PSI comes with a few more sets of jaws.
I’ll probably also pick up some flat jaws for finishing bowl bottoms.
What do you think I should buy, fellow lumberjocks? Sorry if this has been answered before.
