This is perfect for me, I've been wanting to get one, but we can't really afford much.

Perfect starter chuck.

Just ordered it.

I'm sure you won't be disappointed.  It's a nice chuck and performs well.

Eagerly and somewhat impaitently looking forward to trying it out.

This will be my first chuck, and with the addition of a new band saw in the shop, I might be a bowl turning fool soon.  The lack of the proper tools have been kind of a discouraging factor, and while can and have worked around it before, it certainly helps to have the right tools, especially when you only get limited time in the shop.

The one thing I would do when you get the chuck is to cut the ball off the end of the T handle wrench they send with it.  It seems to strip the screws a bit when changing the jaws out.  Or...  just use a different wrench if you have one and save yourself some time.

Good to know. I have a full set of larger sized T handle Hex, so I should be good.

What size is it?

After seeing your reviews, couldn't pass up on ordering one myself for a backup. Thanks for the info.

I'm pleased as punch with mine!

It worked great, right away.

This thing is pretty sturdy, works perfectly, and is easy to use.

Definite thumbs up from me.

Question: what size drill bit should I use for the screw chuck?

Measure valley to valley (the smallest diameter of the screw), then pick a drill bit the next size smaller than that number (or two sizes smaller if necessary). I have found that a touch of wax helps it screw on. I keep a toilet wax seal (Home Depot..$2) on hand to wax wood screws.
There may be other ways to pick the drill bit size, this way seems to work well for my needs.

If you are working with soft wood go even smaller.
