That lathe uses a pretty standard 1”x8tpi threaded spindle, so any chuck that will work with 1”x8tpi is what you want. There are very few ‘lathe specific’ chucks out there. BTW, the Baracuda 2 chuck is on sale now for $139 for the set (chuck + 4 jaw sets). There are plenty others out there as well, just take your pick.

That’s a good price on a chuck! You might check out Hurricane products too, they are usually very reasonable…
