For the SB 13. We used to have one on a SB where I used to work. Man I loved that thing...
I'm not sure what you guys think but I think it's about the handiest chuck in the world.

Yep. They're pretty handy & quick. It's a bit of a pain to deal with short parts but at least most of the time that isn't an issue. The best plan is to get a 5C chuck too & have the best of both worlds.

That Leblonde ROCKS! I ran one just like it a few weeks ago and it was sweet.

The Leblond is pretty nice. There are a lot of nicer ones out there. If I had my druthers (the money) a Colchester would be perfect for what I do. The Leblond is a sturdy workhorse with just enough bells & whistles. I remain pretty happy with it after having it going on ten years.

My only three minor complaints:
Kinda noisy (spur gears I guess)
I'd like some faster RPM
Small spindle bore

Still, I like it just fine.
