Oneway Talon Question for Rob Lee and others...

Martin from Granbury
>OK, I am about to pull the trigger on a Talon chuck, but, before I do, please answer a couple of questions for me.

In the current LV catalog, on page 48, there are two Talon chucks listed with different headstock thread sizes. I am buying this for an old style Jet mini lathe (without the variable speed, I am afraid). I am pretty sure I need a #2 morse taper, but do I need a 1" by 8 TPI or 1 and 1/4" by 8 TPI headstock thread size?

What difference does this measurement make? Will I be unable to use certain accessories if I choose the wrong one?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Martin, remove "5" for correct email
