Steve’s videos are very clear sharp and really show you what to do with the tools.
His chucks and turning tools are also excellent.
OOPs forgot the link

Steve forgot a lot about wood tuning chucks. When first got into woodturning could buy a couple different Axminster chucks from several venders. The article linked here was the most informative article ever published in a magazine. Russ Fairfield also did a nice review, think his article still on-line.

Of course personal preference and opinions from woodturners all over the map. One reason bought my Oneway Talon, not available when article written was due to positive feedback on Oneway chucks in the article. Have not been disappointed. Did not charge extra for threaded insert to fit my lathe, did for my second Talon.

When first got into turning and for several years after the major manufacturers were Axminster, Nova, Oneway, and Vicmarc. Now with so many new names and chucks made in China hard to keep up with them all. Today price more than anything determines chuck purchases.

So yes liked Steve’s video on chucks! Just not going to run out and buy a Hurricane chuck today!

Thanks for the link enjoyed some of his other videos too.

Bill,
Like any hobby (my biggie is scrolling) there are lots of tool choices out there. It can be very intimidating for a newbie. I was fortunate to have a local turning club to help me along with my skills and tool selections.
My first chuck was detrmined by budget. It required two levers to tighten. I got a lot of use out of it but I wasn’t happy. I then bought one that had a bevel gear drive, it tended to cam out when tightening. I like the Oneway and Nova chucks they are a quality chuck. The Hurricane is just another quality choice.

He does make good videos. I’ve just bought a nice lathe for my shop. Over the years, all I have done with lathes is to turn a few spindles and legs. I hope to change this very soon. Thanks for the post.

I have the 125 chuck with most of the different jaws being delivered tomorrow. After watching his videos and going back and forth in my mind about some of the more well known names, these seemed to be at least equal quality for a better price. If this turns out to be the case, I’ll probably get some extra chucks at a later date.
