WOOD magazine review

Includes four sets of jaws

Review Summary

The Falcon tied with the Apprentice for greatest #2-jaw range (1-1/2"), and its screw center holds large blanks securely. It comes with four sets of jaws and the best storage case in our test of 10 chucks. Although one of those jaw sets has rubber tips for gripping turned bowls and vessels by the rim so you can finish the bottom, the jaws open only to 5-7/8" in diameter—not all that useful if your lathe is capable of turning a 10" or 12" bowl.
