I am fairly new to wood-turning. And until I got the Barracuda system I had been using screws and face-plates to mount my work on the lathe to turn it. There was more time and hassle involved doing it that way as I discovered once I got the Barracuda system!
It has cut my turning time in at least a third! I consider that to be a lot of saved time. I want to be turning wood and producing artwork at a rate that is productive from a selling standpoint, and still produce a great piece. This system has allowed me to do that!
*Note: I am new to wood-turning, BUT, I am not new to lathes and chuck systems! 23 years in metal industry*
With the above stated line, I wanted to say how impressed I was with the quality of the actual chuck that holds the MANY jaws that go on it. It is not a low-end chuck that you have to worry about falling apart or jamming on you from repeated use. The tools that come with it are sufficient to tighten the work on the chuck. The tightening tools have not bent on me either. The entire system seems to have been built with the best quality in mind.
Another thing I noticed right away upon opening the kit, was that there were slots in the kit carrying case that were empty! No, nothing was missing form the kit, the company just made a very smart move in my opinion, by providing more slots for others jaws and accessories that you can buy for the system so that as/if you expand the system you have a place for the new accessories!
After getting the system and using it (I have had it for about 2 months now) extensively, I cannot understand how they can sell it at the price it is! It is what I consider to be a steal! So, if you are looking for a great chuck system at an even greater value, this is it!

There seems to be confusion on how to replace missing or damaged set screws on a PSI/Barracuda chuck -- the ones which hold the jaws to the chuck body -- and how impossible they are to find.

The replacement screws are metric M5x0.8x12mm OVAL HEAD or FLAT HEAD. I keep seeing recommendations to use US 10x32 Pan Head machine screws instead. No, no, no.

DO NOT USE 10-32 screws!!! They seem to fit, but not really. 32 tpi = a pitch of 0.794 mm. That is close enough to 0.80 that a 10-32 screw will go in for the first half dozen threads or so before it binds up. which is why some people have recommended them. HOWEVER, an M5x0.80 screw is 4.85mm in outside diameter, and a 10-32 screw is only 4.65mm. That means that if you use a 10-32 screw in the chuck's M5x0.80 tapped hole, only the outer third of each thread will engage into the chuck body, significantly increasing the chance that the screw will fail and possibly cause a catastrophe. That sloppiness is the main reason a 10-32 screw will fit in the first place; note that a M5x0.80 screw is too big to fit into a 10-32 nut.

DO NOT USE pan head. If you look at the jaws, they are both counterbored and countersunk for the original slanted-bottom set screws. Either flat head or oval head will seat correctly, but pan head will just sit on top of the countersink with no contact to the jaw body except at the screw's rim, making it much easier for one to work loose. Pan head also might not recess below the level of the jaw, which could make a difference when your work is chucked.

It isn't as if metric M5x0.80 machine screws are hard to find. My local American big-box home supply store (Lowe's) has them in many lengths, oval, flat, pan, and hex head, at a horrific price of two for 80 cents.

I was looking for a cheap but well made chuck after my last one exploded on me. I settled on the PSI CSC2000C after reading all the other fine reviews on Amazon.

I was wary about the bar mechanism, but now that I've tried it out I wouldn't trade it for anything.

The chuck is much heavier than it looks in pictures. Very nice.

To be clear, the chuck itself is 1x8 tpi.

Bought these to use on my Jet mini lathe. Works great I've used it several times to make thimbles. The quality appears to be very good

Great chuck for the value! I use it on a Wilton Mini-lathe and have not had a problem. Nothing has ever come loose! All around a great value for the money!

The chuck is definately an improvement from my earlier PSI CUG3418 (no "C"). I still use it and wanted to have the second chuck to attach onto the tail stock while turning bowls. This new chuck is lighter and turns smoother when chucking the wood. It also came with one more jaw than the original 3418 which lends to flexibility of multiple projects. I have found the PSI tools to be a worthy value.

I have four chucks that I use steady, one Nova and three Barracudas I prefer the Barracuas and prefer those with the bars over the key adjustment.
