I screwed up

>I KNEW I shoulda listened.

But NOOOOOOO, I gotta try to save $100.

I looked at chucks yesterday and bought a Nova Midi.

Then I got it home.

Crud. The jaws don't align, yes they are matched 1-1, 2-2, etc.

The chuck itself runs flat smooth, no runout I can detect by feel either at speed or by hand.

The jaws, at least .040 out. They don't close right.

The grub screws to set tension don't thread into their holes in 2 out of 3 cases.

And the tommy bars are gonna be an obvious pain.

Back to Towson tomorrow.

But now I'm leaning to a Oneway given the fit of the jaws on the Nova product.
