Chucks and lathe motor temp

Stephen DiCenso
>I have 2 questions. I have looked at the Supernova, Talon and Vicmarc chucks. I have a Fisch mini lathe and want to turn bowls, etc. There are advantages and disadvantages for me in all three. Any comments? I am leaning in the direction of the Talon but is there more versatility in the Supernova? Also, I have the Fisch TC 90-100 Mini Lathe. Is it normal for the motor to get hot to the touch? Assume I've been turning for 30 - 45 mins. Lathe is only 2 months old.
