I have a great chuck, a One Way, and use it for a fair amount of turning. But as I was reading on one of the forums about concerns over a new comer buying one (brand, price, jaw sets, etc) I began to wonder if we are missing something. Four jaw scroll chucks are relatively new to the wood turning scene. Do newcomers really need them? Do pros? They carry a fairly hefty price tag because of the quality and can cost more than some first time lathes. For instance, I do not use a chuck for turning bowls and platters. Lately I have been using large jaws to finish bottoms, but it is not really needed. What are others using?

At the request of a couple of people I have made a video of myself turning a garden mushroom, that is a musroom to go in the garden figuring that an 11" mushroom is too large for the house. Just head for the site and check out the Free video section.
