I bought a nova G3 reversable off of Amazon for $107 a couple weeks ago. Looking at woodcraft they have it at $175 just fyi. Even on sale you're not going to beat that deal.

another question i had if i go with the Harbor freight one would Nova 48232 G3 Reversible Chuck be a good choice for this?

yes, the same chuck can hold a bowl or a pen or other spindle. you'd just want different jaws for each purpose. The Nova G3 is a favorite here for good reason. it takes just a few minutes to swap out the jaws, and there are a crapload of jaw options available. you should be able to stick with the bowl jaws that (usually) come with the G3 and add a set of spigot jaws like these to help with pens, other spindles, and smaller bowls or boxes.

IMHO, it's worth it to spend the extra $24.

Can also get it with a threaded adapter instead of dedicated threads, in case you ever upgrade to a full size lathe.

The Nova jaws will work with both the Nova and Record chucks. Any other chuck will be proprietary to that brand. So, plan accordingly for upgrades and accessories.

That chuck is not self-centering, nor does it appear to support accessory jaws, which is bad. Those fixed jaw chucks can only grip the stock with a small surface area compared to dedicated woodturning chucks. I would say that's not what you want to buy.

If you're looking for a good entry level chuck, the Nova G3 chuck is available right now on Amazon for only $89, which is an absolute steal for that chuck. This is the version for the Nova lathe, so it comes with a 1"x8tpi thread. You can ignore the part about it being for Nova only, it will work fine on any lathe with a 1"x8tpi spindle.

Also, chucks are nice, but they're not a mandatory item for turning! Everything a chuck can do can be done with a waste block, some glue, and a friction/jam chuck. It takes more time, and slightly more material (part-off waste), but it's how many people learned before chucks were commonly available for cheap.

Okay I'm confused. A faceplate is a separate device from a chuck, and won't be used to attach your chuck to your lathe. Do the four jaws on that chuck move in unison to clamp onto the workpiece (self centering) or are they operated independently? If they are independent, that is not a woodworking chuck. It is for metal work. Even if it is self centering, four individual points of contact is not good for woodworking. You want something like this. Can you return it?
