Hi all. I’ve just gotten a lathe (PW 3520) and need advise on a chuck. Got a deal from woodcraft for a g 3, 169.00 and alot of extras or a superova 2 for 140.00. The swing on mine is 20” and I understand the g3 is for smaller lathes. All opinions are really appreciated.

thanks

Mike

Supernova2 can handle over 14” and at a lower price through April 27th. I had a similar dilemma a few days ago between the g3 and sn2, but only because my lathe swings 12”...

SuperNova2. I have 3, with never a problem. Got mine from Craft Supplies, which included the correct adapter.

A belated endorsement for the SuperNova II.
