Turning

Subject:
Thoughts on collet chucks......

roger lance
Hello.....by introduction, I'm a guy from the power tool main board and hand tool forums......but, I have a lathe and do some turning......mostly simple things for the shop and furniture parts.

My lathe is a standard duty Delta with 12" swing.....so, I'm mainly spindle turning or making smaller objects. I've become curious about collet chucks as a means of holding knobs and the like and wondered what real turners thought/felt about the usefulness of these devices in wood turning.

Thanks for your insights.
