OK, well, the one I went for is, in fact, the Barracuda2, model #CSC3000C.

I can t tell about actually using icon a lathe because I just opened it. But I agree that getting the whole she-bang in a nice case, when it has lots and lots of good reviews, at a price of $140 was enough to sway my decision. Just handing it, I like the way it feels and operates. And Penn Industries has a number of other jaws and plates and such that fit it, so I liked getting the versatility of options.

wow, that one does come with quite a bit for the money…and i do like the fact that it comes in a carrying/storage case, too. has both 3/4” x 16tpi and 1” x 8tpi included as well, which is exactly what i was wanting out of a chuck, plus 4 sets of jaws. we may have a winner here, folks.

sure, at some point, i may find that i need a much bigger/better chuck, but that will likely be several years and a much larger & more expensive lathe down the road…right now i’m just working with a tiny mini lathe and just want to easily be able to turn small bowls/platters on it while i get the hang of things.

let me know how you like this chuck once you’ve got some mileage on it!
