opinions of this chuck *LINK*

>Hi everyone,

I'm a very inexperienced woodturner and am trying to decide on a scroll chuck for my Jet mini lathe. I've looked through the archives and was set on the Vicmarc VM100, but I saw this chuck from Nova that looks like it might be a better value. It is only $120 at woodcraft right now and accepts all the accessories for other Nova chucks, without adapters.

I'm just not sure if the extra price for the Vicmarc ($220 at packards) or even the Oneway Talon ($210 at woodcraft) is worth it.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Mike
