For my spindle lathe is this something I need, and if I do would this work or maybe I can get by with something cheaper. I finally got my lathe going late last week and I see right off you guys make it look a lot easier than it is.

That is a super chuck and the price is pretty good considering the extra jaws. 

 

I started with the Teknatool Midi-

It uses "Tommy Bars" instead of the T-handle for tightening/loosening.

I have basically the same lathe mine is a little older, and is badged Delta Milwaukee.

Did you have to restore it? If not it looks to be in great shape!

Hey Larry, I didn't have to do anything except clean some dirt off it. What little I have tried on this lathe it seems to do better on the next to the highest speed. I hope I can learn enough to turn 4 legs about 9" long before Christmas. I am building my daughter a small table that you eat from while laying in bed. I don't know what you call it. Why she wants it I don't have a clue. WOMEN !!!  LOL

Don, I believe they are called lap trays or tables. That may depend upon what region you live in though.

I started with a Penn State Ind. chuck because it had some extra jaw sets with it.  Some people frown on them and maybe I just got lucky and got a good one but it has servred me well over the years.  I do have a couple Nova chucks and would recommend them too.  I use them for the bigger items I turn.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
