Subject:
Chuck size??

Lou Krupnick
>I have one of the newer Craftsman lathes with a 1HP motor (15" swing, 2 hp developed, whatever that means) that seems to work really pretty well. I've been drooling over the cataloges looking at chucks lately & need recommendations on whether such a lathe would handle a 4-1/2" or 5" chuck? I hope to turn larger bowls & platters. Any pros/cons re: size, weight & brand would help.
thanks, Lou
