Using a chuck that doesn’t run true will produce similar frustrating results. Make it a practice to avoid worn or poorly made chucks. Types of Chucks As your turning skills increase and your projects become more adventurous, you’ll keep encountering different chucks and chucking methods, most of which were devised by pioneering turners. Every chuck type has variations. And there’s a turner-made version of (or one that pre-dates) virtually every commercial chuck. The chucks that follow are just the tip of the iceberg.
These operations often present unique requirements, so a dizzying array of manufactured and shop-made chucks have evolved to grasp, expand, screw, compress, trap, pull, jam, stick—and even to move the work through an eccentric pattern (see Sources, page 42).

Learning about chucks will expand your capabilities and make your turning safer, to boot.
