Keyless Chucks

George Van
>I am going to buy a new #2MT, 1/2" chuck for my lathe. I am looking at one at Woodcraft. Are there things I should be aware of when purchasing a keyless chuck? I will be using forstner bits in it up to 3". Will keyless chucks work for large size bits or am I better off purchasing a keyed type chuck? My chuck is old, 1940 vintage and is tired and not holding true any more.
