Well after a long wait I decided to get the Nova g3 chuck. I’m waiting on it to arrive now but I have notice that a lot of turners buy more than one chuck rather than change jaws;;;which would be best;;;buy utility chucks and not have to change jaws or change the jaws on a good one;;;I would love to hear a few woodturners comments. Thank you

I have a Oneway Stronghold for my Powermatic, and a lot of accessories. Never could afford multiple chucks, but would love to have the money…

I am fortunate to own 4 SuperNova2 chucks, plus multiple sets of jaws. I guess it just comes down to being willing to change jaws each time you need a new set, but I sure like having different ones available to perform the next operation without down time.
