This chuck has over 2" inches jaw travel doubling the size range of what you can chuck on without having to change jaws all the time. And there is no gap in what their different jaws will hold. Even better, there's plenty of over lap in their size range. One other thing that I really like about this chuck is its handle turns the right way, clockwise, to tighten it! The other woodturning chucks I've tried all turn the wrong way (counter-clockwise to tighten) compared to all the chucks (and about everything else) I've used in the machine shops I've worked in.
The things that I don't particularly like about this chuck is its pretty loose. When they made it they set the tolerances wide open on the machining. I mean the thing is so loose that when you shake it, it rattles. The jaws wobble and rock back and forth and there's a lot of slack in the scroll gear that runs the jaws in and out. Its really sloppy in its function, is about the best way that I can put it. Which isn't really all that bad except for one thing. If you have a piece chucked in it and do a lot of turning on it, over time it can work loose. So you need to stop and tighten the chuck every now and then. As for the chuck key, mine came with a 5/16 Allen T-wrench for it. It actually takes a 8mm. and that is still a little loose fitting. And like one other guy said, the screws that hold the jaws on are a bit short and undersized for the job. So that makes this really a light duty chuck and I wouldn't trust it to hold any thing even close to as big as the Nova G3 or SuperNova2 chuck. And probably the PSI chuck of the same size.
Overall with everything considered it's a OK light duty chuck for the price. It's biggest plus being the extra jaw travel over the other chucks. If it was machined a lot tighter and at closer tolerances like the others and had a little bigger screws holding the jaws on I would give it 5 stars. As it is, I can only give it a 3. And the only reason I'm giving it a 3 is the extra jaw travel. If it was the same as other chucks I would only give this 1 star and send it back.
And as for sending it back, I had to send back the first one I got. The #4 jaw with the stop pin would barely run out. The hole for the stop pin was drilled off center and the slot on the back of the jaw that was supposed go over the pin rub so hard on one side it made the jaw go cockeyed. I'm still waiting on my refund and to see if I had to pay the shipping to send it back and a restock charge.
The little 3mm hex wrench that came with this chuck -- for replacing the chuck jaws -- was defective, however; the hex wrench must have missed the hardening step, because it was so soft it just twisted up when I tried to loosen the machine screws that hold on the jaws.
Fortunately I had my old 3mm hex wrench that came with my earlier Grizzly chuck, and it worked just fine for removing the machine screws on the new chuck. I have contacted Grizzly for a replacement hex wrench.
I'll update this post when I learn how they handle the replacement.
