Most chucks can be made into reversing by drilling/tapping and using a set screw throught the side of the hub. I have 2 Barracuda chucks (not quick change) and they have worked very well. PSI had the qc chucks when i purchased my last one. I reasoned that I can almost buy another chuck for the premium $ of the qc, so I went with another screw on jaw type. The Barracuda chucks are about the best value with all of the included jaws, and I’ve found I use all of them for something.
