I have been turning pens, tool handles, and spindles on a harbor freight 5 speed bench lathe that I got for Christmas this year and am very happy with the tool for the money. As I was warned, pens are not enough. I am now looking to turn smaller bowls and find myself looking for a chuck.
I went to my local woodcraft and talked to a couple turners and was recommended the Nova G3. Has anyone out there used this chuck on the HF lathe? It is one of serveral Jet clones, so to some extent has anyone tried it on a Jet mini lathe? I like the single tool adjustment as I do not have three hands and its smaller size seems to be a good fit for the smaller benchtop lathes.
Thanks in advance.
