True, most chucks are made to do reverse turning – but – not all lathes have the extended spindle which allows reverse turning. To do so, you must tighten the grub screw onto for the spindle, and doing so on a non-extended spindle will damage the spindle threads.

When purchasing the Barracuda Chucks, make sure you get them from PSI and not second hand. The older chuck keys were of a softer metal than the new ones, and tend to wear out quickly.
