I found out if you put a slight dovetail on a tenon, the chuck holds stronger. I noticed after a few months that the screws that hold the face plates on were starting to strip and had to get the worn out ones off with a screw extractor bit. I made my own replacement screws that worked out well. I took one screw with me to the hardware store and found out it was a metric 5mm x 0.8 thread. The only ones they had of that with a flanged top were longer and a phillips head insert. I used a bolt cutter to cut them roughly down to the size of the original screws and put them threw a 5mm x 0.8 die and they work perfect. I would suggest keeping the chuck and all its plates, screws, wiped down with a corrosive preventive like Fluid Film.
this is no Oneway, Nova or Easy Wood Tools chuck, but it's a great value.
I've made a couple bowls thus far using the worm to get the outer & bottom recess made, then the jaws holding in the recess to hollow. No problems with anything coming loose, or coming off.
With the attached jaws, 2" I think, the outside to hold a recess has large teeth/threads. I'd prefer a dovetail here, but still love it.
Worth every penny!!!
Update (a couple years later)... I did purchase the second Barracuda II chuck along with a #2 Morse Taper attachment so I can mount the second chuck in my tail stock. I can chuck a work piece from the tail stock end, then remove the work piece from the chuck in the head stock, and switch the second chuck to the head stock. Now the workpiece is perfectly centered in the chuck. With only one chuck, I would have dismounted the workpiece from the chuck, turned it around, and remounted it from the other end - and then of course I would have to re-turn the workpiece to get it round because it never remounts in the chuck at exactly the same angle. I love having two Barracuda II chucks.
It holds tight as long as the jaws are not trying to hold something too wide or too small for THEIR opening. I suppose the case is pretty good but I find it unnecessary... I have cabinets with shelves just above the machines and it's easier for me to just reach in and pick up the chuck that I need.
