Does anyone know what the Dakota Precision Scroll Chuck is like? There is one on offer in the Rutlands Catalogue, but I don't want to purchase it until I have heard a few people's opinions so would appreciate hearing from anyone who has some experience of them. Thanks

Not heard of many people that have brought this chuck. Mostly the people that I have spoken to tend to have some of the better known names like Robert Sorby patriot chuck, and Axminster chucks both of which get good reviews and also a range of jaws. Some other members may have their own preferences.

Personally I own a patriot chuck and find it very good as If I change lathes it is easy just to go out and buy a new insert. I have 2 inserts one 3/4"*16 and 1"*8 that way I can put the same chuck onto whichever lathe I want to use

I have one of the chucks from Dakota and the extra jaws, all work fine without any problems. John K.

Thankl you all, I appreciate your letting me know your feelings on this and am happy to know that it is a reasonable if not good option. Especially considering the offer price.

Just a thought, but there was some discussion on the forum about Dakota chucks a while back. If you enter the keyword "Chuck" in the search box and look at "which chuck should i get "i am at confused dot com" you'll see a few comments.
