    Hahaaa. Naw, that was a joke. All my other chucks were used when I bought them. Best thing to do IMO.. This is the only one I bought new. So yeah, I forget what I paid but it was less than the lathe JR

    I have most of them talked about. Buck, PB, Bison and so on in scroll chucks for the lathe in six inch mostly.. Six jaw and three. When I am thinking precision I usually go to the four jaw independent or a collet.. But yeah, I like all the chucks I mentioned, use them on three diff lathes..

    My best one though?? SCA by far. I only use it on my 10ee due to the speed (RPM) considerations. Its a very nice chuck and frankly surpasses all the other fine chucks I have.. Oh, and very in-expensive. Get one if you find one. JR

    I've been happy with a Fuerda Gator PA3-5A chuck. It's a 5" run-tru chuck on a 5C mount. Made in China, but looks similar in finish to the Bison I bought back when they were much cheaper.

    Rohm or Bison if I could afford them. One of my top finds last year was a 4" Pratt Burnerd NOS British made with both sets of jaws for about £25. It is a little gem now modified for 6 mounting screws to hold it on a loose register to the backplate for a poor mans "set tru" adjustability if needed. It complements the 125mm, 5" and 160mm chucks already used on the lathe, being better for small jobs.
    Properly looked after and used, cleaned regularly, a chuck should last indefinitely.

    The best would be a Schunk. Get the song in your head, "nothing compares to you". That is a Schunk.

    Agree with the comments on the PB and Bison.

    TOS and Vertex are also worth considering but difficult to find in NA. I have 3 from TOS but none from Vertex - but figure that the quality of their lathe chucks will be the same as their keyless drill chucks. I have a 1/2” sized one of the latter and it is really smooth and very accurate.
