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.

Don,

 

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.
