    The thing that struck me about this "update" was I actually asked this question way back in 2010.

    And we all know the rock chuck's are nearly perfectly balanced. I guess we will have to wat for MT to chime in and explain all the "benifits" over LHR or aftermarket chucks out there.

    I's sticking with the rock unless there is some REAL benifit to this new chuck. I'd love to see a third party do a static and dynamic balance test on thest two chucks to see who the real winner is.

    I guess it took a while, but it would appear that this question has finally been answered. I'm not bashing anyone or anything... at the time I just wanted some empirical data that would compare all the chuck alternatives. Even now, I'd still love to see some data but I understand the logistics of getting impartial data in a way we could all agree was fair and balanced.

    the original thread has since been archived, but you can still google it if your want to read the entire thread. Im not sure if it is possible to read archived items directly within the forum.

    edit: I was mistaken... the entire thread still exists on the live forurm : http://forum.carvewright.com/showthr...chuck-released...

    I just tried this modification. The noise reduction is significant. At least 15%

    M5x20 $0.70 M5 split washer $0.10 each 2 = $0.20

    I went with the M5 washer vs the #10 ... guessing that is ok????

    I bought them at Ace Hardware. About $1.00. They also had the M5 split washers instead of the #10 split (lock) washers.

    From what I understand, either will work, but metric was about more than twice the cost.

    I haven't heard it yet. Just found out about it yesterday.

    Default Socket Cap Screws and Washers

    Hello,

    I went to Home Depot for mine. The Socket Screws were $ 0.70 for a pack of two and the #10 split Washers were $ 0.98 for a pack of thirty.

    I just did my first carve with this mod yesterday. Significant reduction in both noise and vibration. Heck of a mod for under a buck!
