The VM100 T- Bar Allen Key operated chuck provides one - hand tightening along with tremendous gripping power provided by the 4.5 to 1 ratio of the scroll. Keyed chucks cannot be beaten when is comes to holding power. The totally enclosed back assures consistent, smooth action by preventing dust and debris from getting into scroll of the chuck.
The backing lid is also indexed for those woodturners who do not have indexing facility on their lathes. The VM100's compact size makes it ideal for use on 300mm (12in) capacity lathes or smaller.
I trusted turner friends that the Grizzly was just as good --- no way. I have two VM 120's and love 'em. Wanted a smaller chuck for spindle, finials,.. After the failure with the Grizzly, I ordered the VM 100 and used it today for a small rosewood platter in expansion mode: perfect!! (now if my tool skills could just match VM's quality!
