    Chuck or jaws?

    I'm looking into making some small and large-small bowls. To do that I need some way to keep a bowl blank on my midi lathe. I already have an old psi chuck (a gift from a friend) with alligator jaws and small step jaws. I would rather use dovetail jaws and jumbo jaws, so here is my list of...
