chuck that is pictured on their website. I would also like to add that
I did not have
any issues with the chuck that came on the lathe other than I wanted
I do a lot of work on soft materials and I like to be able to use soft
jaws at times.
Grizzly's website shows the
equipped with a 6" 3-Jaw chuck with two sets of replaceable jaws
(shown below on left) The chuck shown in the
replaceable jaws like my Bison chucks. This not the
same chuck that my G4003G came with and mine

also asked if I could swap my new unused 6" chuck for
was told no.
I've still not

For what the lathe cost I
personally think they should supply the higher quality 6" chuck shown
on their website
or at least make mention that it has changed.
