i am new to woodturning and bought a set of nice gouges from ebay, but just feel I have something missing to assist me in my bowl making quest? Or would I be better investing in a better chuck and faceplate maybe! All advice welcome

The chuck you already have will do the job but the newer scroll chucks are a lot easier to use. Try to buy the best you can afford as they will not depreciate as much as cheap ones the same applies to any woodturning tools. be careful what you do buy as I have seen carving chisels on places like E bay being sold as turning tools.

Also when buying chucks try to get ones that have plenty of different jaws available as after sales add ons like Axminster tools chucks when buying also check that you order the correct thread size
