Somebody mentioned a 6 inch chuck that would fit on to the 7 x 10 HF type of metal lathe, does anyone have a model number or source for that?

A 6" chuck is usually about 4-6" thick - kind of large for a 10 lathe.

Jerry-

6" is kinda big but over at Mini-Lathe.com Frank Hoose has a review of a 5" 3-jaw and mounting instructions plus how it worked out:

He also tells the costs plus where he got it.

I'm working on the plate to mount a 5" bison 5C collet chuck to the minilathe. I'll post after I get it done as to how it works out.

I've mounted a 5" 4 jaw on my 7x10; works fine. I don't think I'd want to go any bigger though.
