For you neophytes, the four jawed chuck is your best friend, not your enemy. It in my opinion is as versatile as they come. Once you have overcome the time barrier of chucking parts it's a piece of cake to use. This takes practice and there is more than one way to do it. I use a single key as opposed to the two key method some use. A set up like this one takes no longer than 30 or 40 seconds to start cutting. Look closely, one jaw is in opposite of the other three. This is common practice, hence the word versatile. That chuck very seldom leaves the spindle.
