New chuck for my lathe

Finally after a long wait trying to find an excuse to buy an accessory to for my small wood lathe that is more expensive than the lathe itself I got it!!

Got some reward cash back in a credit card and without thinking it twice I bought it.

Here is my new Barracuda Wood Lathe Chuck System that is a nice self centering chuck with a lot of accessories:


I just made a very small piece for my Pythagoras clock and now my I feel and understand the importance of a good chuck. I have several projects in mid with the lathe after I finish with my clock.
