    Chuck size vs lathe size selection...

    So I picked up the Laguna Revo 1216 and I'm finishing up tool selection. The next thing I'm looking at is the chuck. I think I've settled on ordering an Axeminster lathe chuck. But I'm not entirely sure which way to go. Either the sk100 or sk114. I'm looking at those two as, per videos, the...

    AAW magazine article!

    The latest issue has an article by John Lucas. It is both an interesting and informative article on indexing on the lathe. Had to run out to the shop and look. My SuperNova2 chuck has holes in the back which I take to be for indexing. John, thanks!
