I have a midi lathe capable of turning a 12” piece. I’d like to buy a chuck for it and noticed that Woodcraft is currently having a $20 off (when you spend $100) sale until 8/27.
Which chuck would be the most versatile?
The Nova Precision Midi Chuck with the extra jaws (BUT needs two hands to use and according to the write up, is ideal for work only 3-4” deep).
The Nova G3 Chuck that only has one set of jaws (BUT uses a key so one had operation is possible).
The price is right in my budget and my gut is telling me the G3, but I wanted to get other opinions.
