Turning Archive 2004
>What would you consider the safe maximum capacity of this chuck. I already have one but have recently gotten a good deal on a woodfast lathe (20" swing) and want to know how large of a bowl I could safely turn with this chuck. Right now it is not an option to buy a larger chuck but I probably could get a set of larger jaws for the talon, say the #3 jaws which claim a larger capacity. I am anxious to try some larger turnings since I have been turning on a jet mini since feb.
