Nova chuck - 3 hands ? *PIC*

Fred in NC
>Well, I did not buy the nicest chuck, the one with a key! I will one of these days.

Sometimes I cannot use the tailstock to hold the workpiece while I tighten the chuck .... and this chuck needs two hands to tighten it.

Unless... see the attached pic. A magnet at the end of the spanner did the trick. The position can be reversed depending on whether on are tightening or loosening the chuch. I just epoxied the magnet at the end of the spanner.
