Subject:
cheap chuck alternative?

Andy in Raleigh
>I just ordered a cheap (about $44 including shipping) Grizzly chuck:

http://www.grizzly.com/products/item.cfm?itemnumber=G8784&

and got back an email that contained:

Unfortunately, our G8784 4-Jaw Chucks are out of stock and have been placed on backorder. They are due to arrive at our warehouse in approximately 4-6 weeks and will be shipped as soon as they are in stock.

WAH!!

Is there another source for reasonably priced (okay, cheap) chucks of that type? I am looking for a 4 jaw round for holding tenons, not a knuckle buster - I already have one of those and it scares the crap out of me every time I use it.

Thanks!
Andy
